HOW TO USE THIS CATALOG 



Tin- catalog provides general information about the University of 
Illinois at Uibana-Champaign and detailed information about the 
undergraduate programs of study offered by eight undergraduate 
colleges, the School of Social Work, the Institute of Aviation, and the 
ColJege of Veterinary Medicine, as well as information on graduate 
education offered at the University. Separate catalogs are published 
for the College of Law at Urbana-Champaign and for the University 
of Illinois at Chicago. There is also a separate Courses catalog, which 
gives information about all courses — both undergraduate and gradu- 
ate — that are currently available at the University as possible offer- 
ings. These catalogs are available from the addresses on the inside 
back cover. 

The catalog has four major sections. The first part provides 
information about student services, research and instructional re- 
sources, undergraduate admission, student costs, financial aid, 
precollege programs, special opportunities, the grading system and 
other regulations, graduation requirements and honors, Reserve Of- 
ficers' Training Corps, and the Council on Teacher Education. The 
second part has separate sections for each of the undergraduate 
colleges and the Institute of Aviation, which detail their curricula, 
special academic programs, specific requirements for graduation, 
honors programs, and other information. 



The graduate programs portion describes requirements and 
procedures for graduate study and gives detailed information about 
graduate degrees offered at the University. 

The final section of the catalog includes a complete faculty 
listing, appendixes, and an index. 

Persons who are unfamiliar with the University may find it 
helpful to refer first to the introductory material in the first part for 
general descriptions of the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

Publications that supplement this catalog, and that are avail- 
able from the Office of Admissions and Records at the address on the 
inside back cover, are: the Courses catalog, which lists all undergradu- 
ate and graduate courses that are currently available at the University 
as possible offerings; the Timetables, which list courses offered each 
term, class meetings times, registration instructions, and tuition and 
fee charges; and the Code on Campus Affairs and Handbook of Policies and

GENERAL INTRODUCTION 



General Introduction 



Graduate Studies 



The University of Illinois m Urbana-Champaign was founded in 1867 
asa state-supported, land-grant institution witha threefold mission of 
teaching, research, and public service. The University has earned a 
reputation as an institution of international stature. Itis recognized for 
the high quality of its academic programs and the outstanding facili- 
ties and resources it makes available to students and faculty. Scholars 
and educators rank it among a select group of the world's great 
universities. For more information, see the University's home page on 
the World Wide Web: http://www.uiuc.edu/. 



The Campus 



Located in the adjoining cities of Champaign and Urbana (combined 
population 100,000), approximately 140 miles south of Chicago, the 
University and its surrounding communities offer a cultural and 
recreational environment ideally suited to the work of a major re- 
search institution. 

The University is a residential campus of classrooms, laboratories, 
libraries, residence halls, and recreational and cultural facilities with 
211 ma jor buildings on the central campus. Nearby are the University's 
Willard Airport; Robert Allerton Park, the campus's nature and 
conference center; and agricultural land. More farmland elsewhere in 
Illinois is used by the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environ- 
mental Sciences as experimental fields. 

Nearly every facility on campus is accessible to people with 
physical disabilities, and the University's programs and services for 
people with disabilities have served as models worldwide. 



Colleges and Schools 



Eight undergraduate colleges offer over 150 programs of study lead- 
ing to baccalaureate degrees. They are the Colleges of Agricultural, 
Consumer and Environmental Sciences; Applied Life Studies; Com- 
merce and Business Administration; Communications; Education; 
Engineering; Fine and Applied Arts; and Liberal Arts and Sciences. 
The Institute of Aviation offers two curricula for prospective pilots. 
Postbaccalaureate students study in more than 100 fields through the 
Graduate College and in professional programs through the Colleges 
of Law, Medicine, and Veterinary Medicine, the School of Social 
Work, and the Graduate School of Library and Information Science. 
National surveys consistently rank the University of Illinois at Ur- 
bana-Champaign among the top ten institutions in many fields of 
study, with several colleges and departments ranked among the top 
five. 



Student Body 



There are approximately 37,000 students and 10,050 faculty and staff 
members in the University community. About 27,900 undergraduates 
(53 percent male, 47 percent female), typically from every state in the 
union and about 100 foreign countries, enroll each year; 90 percent of 
the undergraduates are Illinois residents. Minority students make up 
about 25 percent of the undergraduate enrollment. 

Undergraduate education is strongly emphasized, and admis- 
sions are very competitive. The median ACT composite score of 
entering freshman is 27 and almost 80 percent of these students ranked 
in the top 20 percent of their high school classes. 

Approximately 125 freshmen are selected annually to join the 
Campus Honors Program as Chancellor's Scholars. The program 
fosters close, collaborative relationships between top students and 
distinguished faculty members through special honors sections, fac- 
ulty mentors, and summer research opportunities. 

Most undergraduate students receive baccalaureate degrees after 
four years, and many go on to advanced study in the humanities, the 
sciences, the social sciences, and various professional fields. Typi- 
cally, over 80 percent of the graduates who apply to law school are 
accepted, well above the national average; 65 percent of those who 
apply are accepted to medical school. 



Courses and Class Size 



More than 4,000 courses are available, although some may not be 
offered every semester. About 74 percent of all class sections have 
fewer than thirty students; 44 percent have fewer than twenty. 



The Graduate College is the academic and administrative unit that has 
jurisdiction over all programs leading to advanced degrees. The 
Graduate College develops and safeguards standards of graduate 
work and promotes and assists research by faculty members and 
graduate students in all fields. See also the Graduate College Web site 
at http://www.grad.uiuc.edu/.

ate residence hall residents are required to select from one of four meal 
plans offered in the "free-flow" dining halls. The university residence 
halls are also home to five living/learning communities and other 
special living options. 

A University Residence Hall contract packet is sent to all under- 
graduate students who are accepted for admission. Room assign- 



ments are made in accordance with the University of Illinois policy on 
non-discrimination. For more information on University Residence 
Halls, visit the web at www.housing.uiuc.edu, call (217) 333-7111, or 
email housing@uiuc.edu. 

PRIVATELY OWNED CERTIFIED HOUSING 

Sixteen privately owned certified housing units range from large 
coeducational residence halls with meal plans to smaller houses and 
suite style living arrangements - many which offer students the 
opportunity to prepare their own food. Most facilities are located on 
or near campus and offer furnished double rooms, semi-private 
bathrooms, air-conditioning, and computer connections. On-site vis- 
its are the best way to explore the variety of amenities offered by each 
facility. A descriptive list is available from the Housing Information 
Office, 431 Clark Hall, 1203 South Fourth Street, Champaign, IL 61820; 
call (217) 333-1420; or email certhsg@uiuc.edu. Or visit them on the 
web at www.housing.uiuc.edu/administrative/certhous. 

FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES 

The Greek community at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Cham- 
paign represents over 5,400 undergraduate members, making it the 
largest Greek system in the country. Forty-five fraternities and twenty 
sororities also provide housing options under the certified designa- 
tion through chapter houses. Almost all chapters have a live-in 
requirement of one year, and the average number of occupants in a 
house is fifty members. If a student decides to join a fraternity or 
sorority, they typically move into the chapter house the year after they 
join. Costs for room and board vary from chapter to chapter. Ques- 
tions regarding fraternity and sorority membership can be directed to 
Greek Affairs at 333-7062. 

GRADUATE STUDENT HOUSING 

The University of Illinois offers both residence hall and apartment 
style living for graduate students on campus. Priority in assignment 
is determined by the date the completed contract/application is 
received. Students should make housing arrangements well before 
the term begins. 

Both Sherman Residence Hall and Daniels Residence Hall offer 
furnished single and double rooms, private or semi-private bath- 
rooms, direct Ethernet connections in every room, free cable televi- 
sion, on-site laundry facilities, and convenient locations. Students 
must be admitted before they can sign a University Residence Halls 
contract. Residence hall information and contracts can be obtained 
through the Contracts and Assignments Office at 200 Clark Hall, 1203 
South Fourth Street, Champaign, IL, 61820; (217) 333-7111; or 
housing@uiuc.edu. 

For graduate students who prefer apartment style living and who 
desire a kitchen in their living unit, the university also offers furnished 
and unfurnished apartments in Orchard Downs and Goodwin-Green. 
Available apartment options include efficiencies, one bedroom and 
two bedroom units. Accessible laundry facilities, convenient parking, 
and 24-hour emergency maintenance are available in both the Or- 
chard Downs and Goodwin-Green communities. Graduate students 
may apply for a university apartment lease prior to gaining admit- 
tance. Students can apply for the apartments online at 
www.housing.uiuc.edu/famhous or by contacting Family and Gradu- 
ate Housing at 1841 Orchard Place, Urbana, IL, 61801; (217) 333-5656; 
or famhouse@uiuc.edu. 

HOUSING FOR MARRIED STUDENTS AND STUDENTS WITH 
FAMILIES 

The University welcomes graduate and undergraduate students with 
families to the Family and Graduate Housing apartment communi- 
ties. Approximately 1,000 students live in apartments located in either 
the Orchard Downs or Goodwin-Green communities. Both communi- 
ties are conveniently located near campus and offer furnished and 
unfurnished options, ranging in size and rental rates. Amenities 
include free basic cable television, live-on staff, 24-hour emergency 
maintenance, an on-site nursery school and plenty of recreational 
space, playgrounds, and basketball courts. These safe, welcoming, 
and culturally diverse communities offer hundreds of activities for 
students, spouses, and children every year.

HOUSING INFORMATION OFFICE 

The Housing Information Office maintains a current listing of pri- 
vately owned apartments and rooms available in the Champaign- 
Urbana community. Students seeking private housing are urged to 
visit the campus as early as possible to make arrangements for this 
type of housing in person. Information about community based 
housing options is available on-line at www.housing.uiuc.edu/ad- 
ministrative/certhous and may prove useful before the campus/ 
community visit. Anyone unfamiliar with standard leasing practices 
should ask a housing consultant for assistance. The Housing Informa- 
tion Office is located at 431 Clark Hall, 1203 South Fourth Street, 
Champaign, IL; (217) 333-1420; certhsg@uiuc.edu. 

UNIVERSITY POLICY ON NONDISCRIMINATION IN HOUSING 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Housing 
Division are committed to a policy of nondiscrimination with respect 
to race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, marital status, 
sexual orientation, age, handicap, unfavorable discharge from the 
military, or status as a disabled veteran or veteran of the Vietnam era. 
In the rental of housing that is University-owned or University- 
certified, or of uncertified housing (apartments, rooming houses, etc.) 
that is listed with the Housing Information Office, the University of 
Illinois policy on non-discrimination shall be followed. The Univer- 
sity makes every effort to ensure that accepted listings include only 
those owners and managers who comply hilly with its non-discrimi- 
natory housing policy. If anyone has any reason to believe that an 
owner or manager of certified housing or any other listed housing has 
illegally discriminated against any individual, this information should 
be communicated directly to the Housing Discrimination Committee, 
431 Clark Hall, 1203 South Fourth Street, Champaign, IL, 61820. 

Undergraduate Admission 



REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES 

Since the information in this two-year catalog is subject to change, 
prospective applicants should contact the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the address on the inside back cover for admission require- 
ments and applications for a specific term. A complete listing of fields 
of study and their admission requirements is given in the booklet 
Undergraduate Admissions Information and Application. Illinois high 
school students may obtain this booklet from their high school coun- 
selors; others should write or call the Admissions Office or download 
the application from www.oar.uiuc.edu. 

Admission counselors are available on campus in the Admissions 
and Records Building, 901 West Illinois Street, Urbana, on weekdays, 
excluding campus holidays, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Appointments 
are recommended and can be made by calling (217) 333-0302. The 
Campus Visitors Center offers campus tours and informational ses- 
sions for prospective students and their families. (See Campus Visi- 
tors Center.) The Satellite Office, located at 200 South Wacker Drive in 
Chicago, also has counselors available for consultation. Appoint- 
ments can be made by calling (312) 575-7810. 

UNDERGRADUATE STUDY OPPORTUNITIES 

An undergraduate applicant to the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign may choose a field of interest from more than 150 pro- 
grams of study. These programs are referred to throughout this 
catalog as majors, options, or curricula and are explained in detail in 
the individual college sections found elsewhere in this catalog. 

In addition to the specific degree programs offered by all colleges, 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers preprofessional educa- 
tion for the fields of advertising, dentistry, journalism, law, media 
Studies, nutrition and medical dietetics, medical laboratory sciences, 
health information management, medicine, occupational therapy, 
pharmacy, physical therapy, and veterinary medicine. 

UNDERGRADUATE ENROLLMENT CONSIDERATIONS

,and toonlyonei urri< ulum within 

i titute 



Because admission is highly competitive, each applicant's initial 
choice of college and curriculum is important and should be carefully 
considered in consultation with counselors and parents. Due to the 
great interest in admission to all programs, there usually is not an 
opportunity for a student to ask for reconsideration of admission for 
an alternate program after an initial admission decision has been 
made. 

A prospective student undecided about a major field of study in a 
particular college may wish to consider applying for admission to one 
of the curricula not requiring students to declare degree program 
majors until the end of the sophomore year. These are the unassigned 
curriculum in the College of Commerce and Business Administration, 
the general education curriculum in the College of Education, and the 
general curriculum in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

A beginning freshman is required to remain in the college and the 
prescribed freshman program to which he or she has been admitted 
for at least two semesters of full-time study. 

A transfer student is obligated to remain in the college and the 
curriculum to which he or she has been admitted for at least the first 
semester of enrollment. A student on campus who wishes to transfer 
to another college must meet the accepting college's admission re- 
quirements and compete for any available space. Due to enrollment 
controls, transfer to some programs is very competitive. For example, 
most colleges will consider only transfer students with 60 hours of 
prerequisite course work. 

ADMISSION OR RETURN DENIED BECAUSE OF 
MISCONDUCT 

The University reserves the right either to deny admission or return to 
any person because of previous misconduct that may substantially 
affect the interest of the University, or to admit or permit the return of 
such a person on an appropriate disciplinary status. A decision will 
not be made until the case has been heard by the appropriate disciplin- 
ary committee. This applies to persons not now enrolled in the 
University who might apply for admission or wish to return. A 
favorable action of the appropriate disciplinary committee does not 
abrogate the right of any dean or director to deny admission or return 
on the basis of scholarship. 

UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION CATEGORIES 

Applicants for undergraduate admission comprise the several catego- 
ries that are defined in this section. A prospective applicant may then 
refer to the general requirements for admission and to the succeeding 
section most appropriate for his or her situation. 

Beginning Freshman. A beginning freshman applicant is either one 
who applies for admission while attending high school, regardless of 
the amount of college credit earned, or one who has graduated from 
high school but completed fewer than 12 semester hours or 18 quarter 
hours of transferable college classroom credit by the desired term of 
entry. 

Transfer Applicant. A transfer applicant is one who ( 1 ) has completed 
a minimum of 12 semester or 18 quarter hours of transferable college 
classroom credit by the desired term of entry, and (2) does not meet the 
definition of a beginning freshman or a returning student. 

Returning Student. A returning student is one who has previously 
registered on the campus as an undergraduate degree candidate and 
has not earned a degree. 

Second Bachelor's Degree Applicant. A second bachelor's degree 
applicant is one who has earned a bachelor's degree and wishes to 
continue study for another bachelor's degree. 

Nondegree Applicant. A nondegree applicant is one who wishes to 
take courses for credit, but does not intend to earn a degree from the 
Urbana-Champaign campus. 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is committed to 
maintaining a safe environment for all members of the University 
community. As part of this commitment, the University requires 
applicants who are under current indictment or who have been 
convicted of a crime (other than a routine traffic offense or in a juvenile 
proceeding) to disclose this information as a mandatory step in the 



UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION 



application process. A previous conviction or current indictment does 

not automatically bar admission to the University, but does require 
ret iew. Complete information about the process is provided in the 
undergraduate application for admission. 

The following general University policies are applicable to all 
undergraduate applicants at both the beginning freshman and trans- 
fer student levels. 

To be eligible for consideration for admission, an applicant must 
meet certain requirements in terms of age, high school graduation, 
high school credits, college preparatory subject requirements, and 
competence in English. 

Age. An applicant must be at least fifteen years of age by the time of 
desired enrollment. 

High School Graduation. An applicant must be a graduate of a 
regionally accredited high school, a school in Illinois recognized by 
the state superintendent of education, or a school elsewhere with a 
rating equivalent to full recognition; graduates of other secondary 
schools and nongraduates of secondary schools may be admitted 
under the provisions for use of the General Educational Development 
Test. 

General Educational Development Test (GED). The achievement of 
satisfactory scores on the General Educational Development Test is 
acceptable in lieu of graduation from an accredited high school. This 
test alone will not fulfill all of the college preparatory subject require- 
ments. 

A standard score of 40 on each of the five tests and an average 
standard score of 45 on all five tests are the minimum scores needed 
to provide the following high school credit: 9 semesters of English and 
8 semesters of social studies. To be eligible to take these tests, appli- 
cants must be at least eighteen years of age or have been out of school 
for at least one year. 

If to be used in lieu of high school graduation, General Educational 
Development Test scores should be sent by the testing center directly 
to the Office of Admissions and Records. 

High School Credits. Applicants for admission to all curricula must 
present a total of at least 15 units of acceptable college preparatory 
schoolwork. Credit earned prior to grade nine is acceptable if the 
transcript of credit, certified by the senior high school, shows the 
credit as high school credit from grade eight. A unit course of study in 
the secondary school is a course covering an academic year and 
including not less than the equivalent of 120 sixty-minute hours of 
classroom work. Two hours of work requiring little or no preparation 
outside the class are considered as the equivalent to one hour of 
prepared classroom work. 

The subject pattern requirements are waived for transfer appli- 
cants. 

A student who lacks a required high school subject may satisfy the 
requirement at either a community college or elsewhere prior to 
enrollment at the University. This information must be communi- 
cated on the application for admission. One semester in college is the 
equivalent of two semesters of high school course work. 

Under extenuating circumstances, a specific subject requirement 
may be waived for otherwise well-qualified applicants. An applicant 
seeking a waiver of the subject pattern requirement should use the 
Personal Statement section of the application to state the rationale for 
requesting such action.

GUIDELINES FOR ACCEPTING COLLEGE CREDITS EARNED BY 
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS 

1 . A college course taken by a high school student at a high school or 
college and applied toward the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign high school subject pattern requirement (see above) will 
not be awarded credit at the University. 

2. A transferable college course taken by a high school student and 
not applied toward the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
high school subject pattern requirement may be awarded credit at the 
University and the grade will be included in the transfer grade point 
average. 

3. College credit can be awarded to high school students by earning 
an acceptable score on: (1 ) Advanced Placement (AP) Program exami- 
nations administered nationally each May; (2) International Baccalau- 
reate (IB) Program examinations; (3)the English or foreign language 
University placement examinations; or (4) University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign Departmental Proficiency Examinations offered 
in all University courses normally open to freshmen and sophomores; 
many examinations are offered each semester as part of the new 
student activities. 

Competence in English. A minimum requirement for competence in 
English applies to all University students. Undergraduate applicants 
for ad;nission may satisfy this minimum requirement by certifying 
that one of the following conditions has been fulfilled in a country 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



where English is the primary language and in a school in which 
English is the primary language of instruction: 

— Graduation with credit for four units, or the equivalent, of English 
from a secondary school; 

— or successful completion of a minimum of two academic years of 
full-time study at the secondary school or collegiate level immediately 
prior to the proposed date of enrollment in the University. 

For an applicant who does not meet one of the above conditions, 
evidence can be provided by achieving a satisfactory score on a test of 
competence in English. The test(s) to be used and the minimum 
score(s) shall be subject to approval by the University Committee on 
Admissions with the advice of the University's Technical Committee 
on Testing. This requirement may be waived upon agreement by the 
director of the Office of Admissions and Records and the dean of the 
college concerned if evidence of competence in English presented by 
the applicant clearly justifies such action. 

ADDITIONAL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

A few colleges and curricula have admission requirements in addition 
to the regular academic standards. Instructions on how to fulfill these 
additional requirements are forwarded to students soon after their 
applications are received. Additional requirements may include 
supplemental background information, professional interest state- 
ment, qualifying audition, portfolio review, writing sample, inter- 
view, or slides of artwork. 

HEALTH REQUIREMENTS 

PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH 

New students may be required to present evidence of satisfactory 
physical and mental health to the director of health services. Each 
admitted applicant will receive a Student Health Information form, 
which he or she must use to report proof of immunity to certain 
vaccine-preventable diseases as defined by state law and required by 
University regulations, as well as any other pertinent medical data, to 
the director of the McKinley Health Center at Urbana-Champaign. A 
minor (someone under eighteen years of age at the time of registra- 
tion) must submit the Student Health Information form with a parent's 
or guardian's written authorization for the student to receive treat- 
ment at the McKinley Health Center. A student who fails to return the 
completed Student Health Information form by the date shown on the 
form and who fails to comply by the end of the first term of enrollment 
is prohibited by state law from subsequent enrollment in the Univer- 
sity. Upon the advice of a McKinley Health Center physician, admis- 
sion or readmission of a student may be denied until the student is 
cleared by the McKinley Health Center. 

Students transferring from the University of Illinois at Chicago or 
Springfield should request that their Student Health Information 
forms be transferred by the health center on that campus to the 
McKinley Health Center. 

Military personnel may have their Student Health Information 
forms completed by a military physician. 

TUBERCULOSIS CONTROL 

New and readmitted students are encouraged to present evidence 
displaying the absence of tuberculosis at the McKinley Health Center. 
All new international students are required to complete a tuberculosis 
screening at the McKinley Health Center before completing registration. 

Final evidence displaying the absence of tuberculosis is estab- 
lished by either a negative tuberculin skin test performed within the 
last twelve months by a health care provider in the United States, or 
a negative tuberculin skin test performed at the McKinley Health 
Center at Urbana-Champaign prior to registration. 

A person who has a positive skin test is required to have a chest X- 
ray. A person with a known history of positive reaction to the tuber- 
culosis skiri (est will not be retestrd, Iml will require a i best X ray to 
show evidence of freedom from active tuberculosis. An individual 
who has had a chest X-ray performed within the previous twelve 
months will not require an additional chest X-ray if the previous chest 
X-ray is obtainable and meets the University's chest X-ray standards.

ADMISSION OF BEGINNING FRESHMEN 

Dates for filing complete applications for admission are given in the 
following and other application calendars. Any applicant claiming 
exceptional circumstances that justify special consideration should 
appeal in writing to the director of Admissions and Records for an 
extension of filing deadline dates. Only rarely, however, are spaces 
available by these late dates, and applicants are encouraged to apply 
during the periods indicated in the application calendars. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

Admission decisions take into account the following objective criteria: 
(a) the courses taken in high school; (b) a combination of high school 
rank in class and admission test score; and (c) the subjective informa- 
tion submitted on the student's Personal Statement. 

All applicants complete the Personal Statement on the application 
form, including information such as: 

— interest/experience in the intended major; 

— Advanced Placement or honors-level classes in high school; 

— state or national recognition for talent, creative ability, leadership, 
or academic achievement; 

— an ethnic or cultural background or an age group that will add 
diversity to this campus; 

— extenuating circumstances that significantly affected an otherwise 
exceptionally good academic record; or 

— any other information the student feels would complete the appli- 
cation profile. 

A student who attends a highly selective high school for which a 
profile may not be on file with the Office of Admissions and Records 
is urged to have a counselor attach the school profile to the student's 
transcript and to request a review through the Personal Statement. 

ADMISSION TEST INFORMATION 

Each beginning freshman applicant, regardless of rank in class or 
length of time out of school, is required to submit an admission test 
score from either the American College Testing (ACT) program or the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) of the College Entrance Examination 
Board. An applicant will not complete the admission requirements 
until the test score is received by the Office of Admissions and Records 
in the form of an official score report sent directly from the testing 
agency concerned. Complete information concerning the test, the 
dates of test administration, and the location of testing centers may be 
obtained from high school counselors. 

APPLICATION DOCUMENTS 

An applicant for admission as a freshman must submit the following 
(all credentials presented for admission become the permanent prop- 
erty of the University, are not subsequently released to the student or 
to another individual or institution, and are not held for reconsidera- 
tion of admission to subsequent terms): 

— A completed admission application form. Admission application 
forms are available from high school counselors and from the Office 
of Admissions and Records at the address on the inside back cover. 
High school students should submit applications through their high 
schools. 

— A $40 ($50 for international students) check or money order 
(amount subject to change), payable to the University of Illinois, in 
payment of the nonrefundable application processing fee. The Uni- 
versity is not responsible for cash sent through the mail. 

— An official high school transcript sent directly to the Office of 
Admissions and Records from the high school showing course work 
completed by the applicant, the date of graduation, and the size of the 
graduating class and the applicant's numerical rank. 

— An official admission test score report (ACT or SAT) sent directly 
to the Office of Admissions and Records from the testing agency. 

— A transcript of any college-level course work completed by the 
freshman applicant sent directly from the collegiate institution at- 
tended.

ADMISSION OF TRANSFER APPLICANTS 



REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

To assist prospective applicants in assessing their opportunities for 
admission, transfer grade point average guidelines are published in 
the Undergraduate Admissions Information and Application booklet each 
September from the Office of Admissions and Records. These are 
guidelines only, and the final standards will depend on the number 
and qualifications of applicants to each program. 

Admission of a transfer applicant is based on a combination of the 
hours and content of transferable credit and the transfer grade point 
average as well as the information provided on the Personal State- 
ment. The minimum transfer grade point average is 2.25 ( A= 4.0); most 
curricula require a higher grade point average. 

If the number of qualified applicants to a college or curriculum 
exceeds the admission quota, those best qualified will be admitted, 
and preference may be given to residents of Illinois. Lower-division 
transfer applicants are restricted due to limited space. 

Additional criteria may be considered in determining the admis- 
sion of those applicants near the borderline of the competitive appli- 
cant pool; these additional factors are described in the Personal 
Statement section. Also, an applicant who has had a significant break 
in the pursuit of an education and can demonstrate an improved 
academic performance, or an applicant for whom relocation from the 
Urbana-Champaign community would present a major hardship, 
may wish to address such a factor in the Personal Statement section of 
the application for admission. 

Eligibility of a transfer applicant with fewer than 30 semester 
hours of graded transferable classroom credit is based on (1) high 
school percentile rank and ACT or SAT test score, and (2) grade point 
average and content of transferable courses attempted. 

TRANSFER STUDENTS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT 
CHICAGO OR THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT SPRINGFIELD 

All admission requirements are the same as those for transfer students 
from other institutions. However, an applicant to the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus is encouraged to go to the Chicago or Springfield Office 
of Admissions and Records, where copies of official credentials will be 
enclosed with the application and where current enrollment can be 
verified to permit a waiver of the application fee. 

TRANSFER APPLICANTS PREVIOUSLY DROPPED OR PLACED ON 
PROBATION FOR DISCIPLINARY REASONS 

A petition for admission of a transfer student who either is on 
disciplinary probation or has been dropped from another collegiate 
institution for d isciplinary reasons must be approved by the appropri- 
ate subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Student Discipline. 



GRADE POINT AVERAGES 

Grade point averages are calculated on the basis of all transferable 
courses attempted for which grades are assigned and for which grade- 
point values can be determined. When a course is repeated, the grade 
point average is computed using both grades and all hours for the 
course. Incomplete grades are accepted as defined by the initiating 
institution. Grades in other course work completed, such as technical 
courses similar in content and level to courses taught at the University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, may be used in the evaluation for 
admission upon request of the college to which a student seeks 
admission. 

Since the grade point average used to establish admission qualifi- 
cations is based on all transferable course work attempted, applicants 
from institutions that delete grades for course work failed and/or 
repeated may find their opportunities limited to special admission. If 
the applicants are admitted and subsequently register, transfer grade 
point averages may not be recorded on their University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign records since the grading policies of the transfer 
institutions and this campus are not comparable. 

ACCEPTANCE OF CREDIT FROM OTHER COLLEGIATE 
INSTITUTIONS 

Credit may be accepted for advanced standing from another accred- 
ited university or college. Accepted credit will be based on evaluation 
of the primary transcript of record of each institution attended. 
Duplicate credit will be counted in the grade point average but 
excluded from hours earned. A student who has passed a course at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may not be given credit 
for the same course taken elsewhere. 

ILLINOIS COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES 

As of the publication of this catalog, Illinois colleges and universities 
are continuing development of the Illinois Articulation Initiative 
(I AI), a statewide agreement that allows transfer between institutions 
of the completed I AI General Education Core Curriculum. This agree- 
ment began with freshmen entering Illinois higher education institu- 
tions in summer 1998 or after. Students who anticipate transferring to 
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are strongly advised 
to contact their academic adviser and to consult the University of 
Illinois transfer handbook for additional specific degree requirements 
in the program of their choice. 

TRADITIONAL TRANSFER CREDIT 

Admission of transfer students to the University of Illinois is based 
only on the transfer course work that is similar in nature, content, and 
level to that offered by the University of Illinois. Other course work 
completed, such as technical courses similar in content and level to 
courses taught at the University, will be used in evaluation for 
admission only upon the request of the dean of the college to which the 
student seeks admission. 

Transfer credit, as defined, will be accepted at full value for 
admission purposes on transfer to the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign if earned at: 

— Colleges and universities that offer degree programs comparable 
to programs offered by the University of Illinois and (1) are members 
of or hold Candidate for Accreditation status from the North Central 
Association of Colleges and Schools or another regional accrediting 
association, or (2) are accredited by another accrediting agency that is 
a member of the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation; or 

— Illinois public community colleges that are neither members of nor 
holders of Candidate for Accreditation status from the North Central 
Association of Colleges and Schools, but that are approved and 
recognized by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) for a 
period of time not to exceed five years from the date on which the 
college registers its first class after achieving ICCB recognition. 

Certain colleges and universities do not meet the above specifica- 
tions but have been assigned a status by the University Committee on 
Admissions that permits credit to be accepted on a provisional basis 
for admission purposes on transfer to the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign. Transfer credit, as defined, from such colleges 
and universities is accepted only on a deferred basis, to be validated 
by satisfactory completion of additional work in residence. Validation 
through satisfactory work in residence may be accomplished by 
earning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, or another 
fully accredited 1 college or university, at least a 2.0 (A = 4.0) grade 
point average (higher if prescribed by the curriculum the student 
wishes to enter) in the first 12 to 30 semester (18 to 45 quarter) hours 
completed after transfer. 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



Credit transferred from an approved 1 community or junior college 
is limited only by the provision that the student must earn at least 60 
semester or 90 quarter hours required for the degree at an approved 1 
four-year college or university after attaining junior standing. The 
student must meet the residence requirements that apply to all stu- 
dents for a degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Cham- 
paign. At least the last 30 semester or 45 quarter hours must be taken 
at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 

In all cases, the precise amount of transfer credit that is applicable 
toward a particular degree will be determined by the University 
college and department concerned. 



1. Colleges and universities meeting one or more of the specifications as defined. 
NONTRADITIONAL TRANSFER CREDIT 

Acceptance of credit awarded on bases other than collegiate class- 
room experiences will be considered for transfer admission purposes 
as follows: 

Test credit for admission as transfer credit. Students presenting test 
credit awarded elsewhere, or test scores for admission will have that 
credit evaluated against cutoff scores established for those examina- 
tions on the Urbana-Champaign campus. Official score reports should 
be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records along with the 
application for admission to the University. A student presenting test 
credit as transfer credit may be granted transfer credit if the student ( 1 ) 
is transferring at least 1 2 graded semester hours of acceptable college- 
level classroom course work from the institution or single campus in 
a multicampus institution that awarded the credit by examination; 
and (2) has successfully completed advanced classroom course work 
at the institution awarding the test credit in a course that is acceptable 
under University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign transfer credit 
policies and that can be considered as a sequential continuation of the 
material covered in the test; or (3) presents raw scores for evaluation. 
After admission, students not awarded credit under this policy 
may attempt departmental proficiency examinations to receive credit 
in those areas in which they claim competence. 

Credit for military training. The completion of six months or more of 
continuous active duty in the U.S. armed forces, including basic or 
recruit training, is accepted for four semester hours of basic military 
science credit. Confirmation of the military record (DD214) for either 
an honorable discharge from active military duty to civilian life or 
transfer to the reserve component is required for credit to be granted. 
Candidates for graduation who are still in active military service are 
entitled to the same credit. Military science credit may also be granted 
for training completed in the service that is comparable to Reserve 
Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) courses at the University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign. Such credit may be used for admission pur- 
poses up to a maximum of 16 semester hours. Credit duplicating 
ROTC credit will not be awarded. 

Credit for education in the armed forces. Official transcripts of 
military service school training may be submitted for comparison to 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign courses for transfer credit. 

Credit earned in academic courses sponsored by noncollegiate 
organizations, such as business, industry, and labor, not recognized 
by the April 1977 Board of Trustees policy statement. Credit earned 
in such courses is not normally accepted. This work may be evaluated 
by the college for potential credit toward a specific degree program 
after admission and registration, subject to validation by proficiency 
examination or successful completion of advanced course work. 
Credit hours may be reduced from that shown by the originating 
agency. 

All criteria are subject to the recommendations of the college of 
enrollment and the department that offers similar courses. 

Credit for experiential learning. Experiential learning credit is not 
accepted for transfer admission purposes. A student who believes 
01 hersell to be knowledgeable in a specific course may be 
granted credit through established proficiency procedures by the 
follegcol enrollment .md tin- department offering a similar course 
after admi-v. M.n and registration.

RETURNING STUDENTS 



A student whose authorized enrollment period has not expired needs 
only to contact the college office to enroll for the desired term. A 
returning student must provide an official transcript directly to the 
Office of Admissions and Records from each collegiate institution at 
which course work was attempted since last attendance at the Urbana- 
Champaign campus. Returning students are assigned an earliest 
registration time, after which the student may access the U of I Direct 
course enrollment system to select classes for a term. Earliest registra- 
tion times begin shortly after the midpoint in the semester prior to the 
desired term of enrollment. 

A returning student has the same status as when the student left 
the campus and is authorized to return to the same college and 
curriculum in which the student was last enrolled. If a returning 
undergraduate wishes to change his or her college or curriculum, the 
student must contact the college of desired enrollment. 

An encumbered student may enroll for courses but cannot com- 
plete registration until the encumbrance is cleared by the office that 
placed the encumbrance. Notification of student status appears on the 
U of I Direct system. The U of I Direct system displays the earliest 
registration time and date when the authorized enrollment period 
expires. Returning students who have forgotten their network pass- 
word must contact the Office of Admissions and Records to obtain a 
new password. 

A former student returning after the authorized enrollment period 
has expired must contact the dean of the college in which the student 
was last enrolled. The dean of the student's college can extend the 
authorized enrollment period to allow the student additional time to 
complete a degree. Each college has its own rules governing the return 
of students whose authorized enrollment period has expired. 

Returning international students must contact the International 
Student Allans ( title e before starting the reentry process. 



UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION 



APPLICANTS FOR SECOND BACHELOR'S DEGREES 

A second bachelor's degree applicant must meet the same require- 
ments for admission as a transfer applicant for the first degree. In 
addition, the applicant is required to submit a petition indicating the 
reasons for his or her choice of program and campus; this petition 
must be approved by the dean of the college concerned. When space 
in a college or curriculum is inadequate, priority will be given to 
applicants seeking their first degrees. 

APPLICANTS FOR ADMISSION AS NONDEGREE 
STUDENTS 

Nondegree admission and enrollment are restricted to participants in 
special programs and to those with nondegree educational objectives 
that cannot be met at another institution. Permanent residents of the 
Champaign-Urbana area are given priority for nondegree admission. 
Nondegree applicants must choose one of two enrollment options: 

Academic Year. Fall and spring semesters, with summers optional. 

Summer Session Attendance Only. Enrollment not allowed for the 
fall or spring term; a separate application for admission is necessary 
to be considered for the academic year enrollment pattern. An appli- 
cant holding a bachelor's degree who desires to take any 300-level 
course for graduate credit or any 400-level course must apply for 
graduate nondegree status, regardless of the level of other courses in 
which the applicant desires to enroll. A graduate applicant should 
complete the Application for Admission to the Graduate College and 
Application for Graduate Appointment form. 

NONDEGREE STUDENT REGULATIONS 

— Nondegree undergraduate students are assessed tuition at the 
upper-division rate. 

— Enrollment is limited to part-time status (fewer than 12 credit 
hours of course work in any semester). 

— Course enrollment requires the approval of the department offer- 
ing the course and the college of enrollment at the beginning of each 
semester. 

— Nondegree students may not pre-register in classes for fall and 
spring semesters. 

— Registration for the fall or spring term is not permitted until the 
fourth day of classes. The late registration charge will be waived for 
undergraduate nondegree students registering during the fourth and 
fifth days of classes. 

— Registration after the fifth day of classes requires the written 
approval of the dean of the college of enrollment. 

— The college has the privilege of terminating a continuing nondegree 
student's enrollment before the student's registration for any term. 

— The same grading system is applicable to both degree and 
nondegree students. Credit earned on nondegree status will not be 
applicable to a degree except by subsequent admission to degree 
status. 

— To be considered for degree-status enrollment, nondegree-status 
students must reapply for admission. 

— Nondegree students admitted to a college/or summer to continue in 
the fall have the option of registering for summer and continuing in the 
fall, or registering initially for fall. 

APPLICATION DOCUMENTS 

An applicant for admission as a nondegree student must submit the 
following (all credentials presented for admission become the perma- 
nent property of the University, are not subsequently released to the 
student or to another individual or institution, and are not held for 
reconsideration of admission to subsequent terms): 

— A completed application form (prospective undergraduate 
nondegree applicants should specifically request the Undergraduate 
Nondegree Admission Application). 

— A $40 ($50 for international students) check or money order 
(amount subject to change), payable to the University of Illinois, in 
payment of the nonrefundable application processing fee. The Uni-

last school attended, and to any person 15 years of age or older whose 
application is approved by the head of Guided Individual Study. 

An application from a student who has been dropped from the 
University of Illinois or any other collegiate institution will be consid- 
ered only upon the recommendation of the authorities of the campus 
or institution from which the student was dropped. 

For further information, write to Guided Individual Study, Uni- 
versity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Suite 1406, 302 East John 
Street, Champaign, IL 61820.

ENROLLMENT GUIDELINES 

Visitors are not permitted in laboratory, military, kinesiology (other 
than theory), or studio classes. 

A former student not currently registered must obtain the ap- 
proval of the dean of the college in which he or she was last registered . 
Former students are not permitted to attend classes as visitors while

Persons registered for a full program (12 semester hours or more) 
may visit other courses without additional charges. Students holding 
scholarships, tuition waivers, or staff appointments generally may 
audit University courses without charge. 

ADMISSION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 

The Office of Admissions and Records determines which students are 
classified as international students: 

An international student is an individual who is not a citizen or 
permanent resident alien of the United States and its territories 
(including the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and American Samoa), 
or has not been approved for an Alien Registration Receipt Card (form 
1-551) by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service. Any 
individual who has entered or will enter the United States on any kind 
of visa is considered international. 

For admission purposes, refugees, parolees, asylumees and condi- 
tional entrants are classified as international, and must meet all 
requirements for international students except for the certification of 
financial resources. 

International undergraduate freshman applicants are urged to 
submit an application and supporting documents approximately one 
year prior to the desired term of entry. Admission is competitive, and 
late applicants lower their chances for admission. Additional informa- 
tion and application materials are available from the Office of Admis- 
sions and Records at the address on the inside back cover. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Admission is competitive, and preference is given to those applicants 
determined to have the best potential for academic success at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The minimum require- 
ments for admission are: 

— Meeting or surpassing University minimum requirements in 
terms of age, high school graduation, and high school courses. 

— Meeting any additional requirements for admission (see Admis- 
sion of Transfer Applicants section). 

— Meeting or surpassing the University requirement of competence 
in English (see next section). 

— Adequate financial resources (see Financial Verification Require- 
ment section). 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



ENGLISH COMPETENCE REQUIREMENT 

Evidence of English proficiency is required of students for admission. 
This is demonstrated by a satisfactory score on the Test of English as 
a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Undergraduate applicants are exempt 
from this test if they have fulfilled one of the following requirements 
in a country where English is the primary language and in a school in 
which English is the primary language of instruction: 

— Graduation with credit for 3 units, or the equivalent, of English; or 

— Successful completion of a minimum of two academic years of full- 
time study at the secondary school or collegiate level immediately 
prior to the proposed date of enrollment in the University. 

The TOEFL test is used to evaluate evidence of English proficiency. 
It is administered under two testing programs. The computer-based 
TOEFL is given at Sylvan Technology Centers worldwide and is 
available throughout the year by appointment only. The paper-based 
program is still offered in some countries on 12 dates. A free informa- 
tion bulletin is available for each of the testing programs from the 
following sources: 

— TOEFL Web site at http://www.toefl.org (download or order 
online) 

— From the office serving the area (a list is on the Web site) 

— United States Information Service offices 

— Binational centers and private educational organizations, such as 
the Institute of International Education 

— TOEFL Services - Mail: P.O. Box 6151, Princeton, NJ 08541-6151, 
USA. Phone: 1-609-771-7100. E-mail: toefl@ets.org 

Applicants who have already taken the test should request that the 
TOEFL office send their scores directly to the Office of Admissions and 
Records. For admission purposes, TOEFL scores are valid for only two 
years prior to the proposed term of entry. If the TOEFL score is 
acceptable but indicates the need for further English study, a place- 
ment test will be required upon arrival at the University. On the basis 
of the placement test scores, students may be required to enroll in 
noncredit English courses and to take a reduced academic load. 

In cases in which TOEFL testing dates are not available prior to the 
desired term of entry, the University will arrange for substitution of 
the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB) test 
given by the English Language Institute Testing and Certification 
Division of the University of Michigan. Complete instructions to 
arrange for the MELAB examination will be provided by the Office of 
Admissions and Records to each applicant for whom the test is 
required. Final admission status is determined after the test results 
have been received. 

The current minimum score is 550 (213 computer-based) on the 
TOEFL. The English requirement for graduation is explained in the 
General Education Requirements section. 

FINANCIAL VERIFICATION REQUIREMENT 

In order to qualify for a Certificate of Visa Eligibility (Form 1-20 or I AP- 
66), an international applicant must submit complete and accurate 
information regarding his or her source of financial support. This 
information is in compliance with regulations of the U.S. Immigration 
and Naturalization Service. Current information and certification are 
also required of international applicants transferring from institutions 
within the United States. Financial resources must be documented for 
the entire length of time required to earn a degree. Expenses for the 
2001-02 academic year were estimated at $25,000, excluding summer 
session tuition and fees. This figure is subject to increase without 
notice and is presented here for planning purposes only. Current 
estimated expenses may be obtained by writing to the Office of 
Admissions and Records. 

Prospective students who cannot document the availability of 
uffii ienl resouri es will be denied admission. 

University financial aid funds are extremely limited and are avail- 
able only to participants in specific exchange programs. Individual 
reqiu I for fmam i,il aid cannot be considered.

tion attended or by the U.S. embassy or consulate. An applicant 
attending a U.S. or Canadian school should have credentials submit- 
ted directly by the school to Admissions and Records. Notarized 
copies of credentials do not fulfill official document requirements. 

A list of all courses in progress, including recently completed

REGISTRATION AGREEMENT 

U of I Direct is the system that allows students to register for courses 
by computer. Students who register for courses agree to pay tuition 
and fees to the University according to the payment policies and 
schedules adopted by the Board of Trustees. If a student wishes to 
cancel registration, and thus avoid payment of tuition and fee charges, 
the student must do so by 5:00 p.m. of the first day of instruction. 

Unauthorized use of U of I computerized systems, data, or re- 
sources; unauthorized use of another individual's identification, ac- 
count, or password; or an attempt to gain unauthorized access is 
prohibited by University policy and may constitute a violation of 
Illinois state law. Access to U of I Direct will be terminated if you are 
found to be making excessive unsuccessful registration attempts. 

TUITION AND FEES 

Tuition and fees for undergraduate students who were enrolled on 
campus in fall 2000 are shown in the 2000 Fall Semester Tuition and 
Fee Schedule. Charges are assessed on the basis of the student's 
college (undergraduate, graduate, or professional) and in some cases, 
curriculum of enrollment; classification as resident or nonresident of 
Illinois; and credit range as determined by the total number of semes- 
ter hours or graduate units for which the student is registered. 

Undergraduate credit is counted in semester hours. Credit for 
graduate work is counted in units. For fee assessment purposes, 1 unit 
equals 4 semester hours. A full-time student is one who is registered 
for 12 or more semester hours of credit, or 3 or more units. 

The Service Fee supports operation of certain campus facilities 
such as the Illini Union, Turner Student Services Building, Assembly 
Hall, and the Intramural Physical Education Building. The Health 
Insurance Fee covers the cost of the University Student Health Insur- 
ance Program that provides worldwide hospital, medical, and surgi-

RESIDENCE CLASSIFICATION FOR ADMISSION AND 
TUITION ASSESSMENT 

The residence classification of applicants for admission is determined 
on the basis of the information given on their applications and other 
credentials. Eligibility for admission to the University is determined 
and tuition is assessed in accordance with this decision. 

Persons who take exception to the residence status assigned to 
them should refer to Appendix B. 

PAYMENT REQUIREMENT 

Tuition and fees assessed for any semester, term, or summer session 
are due and payable in full by the deadline indicated on the Registra- 
tion Statement of Charges and Aid. The privilege of paying these 
charges by installment may be granted by the Office of Student 
Accounts and Cashiers (see next section). Students who do not make 
fulloi fir -I install mi Til payment by the scheduled due date shown on 
■ ment will be assessed a $25 (amount sub|ei t to change) charge

The dclii Iiarge is applied to all items . harged to the 

student account and for which payment is delinquent 



INSTALLMENT PLAN FOR PAYING TUITION, FEES, AND 
HOUSING CHARGES 

Students enrolled on campus may pay tuition and fees, single-student 
residence hall charges, and flight instruction fees on an installment 
plan. This plan is not available to students registered in extramural, 
correspondence, and four-week summer term courses, or to students 
for whom this privilege has been denied. 

Under the installment plan, semester charges are collected in three 
installments. The first is payable during the first ten days of instruc- 
tion, and the remaining ones are payable in each of the two following 
months. Approximately one-half of the summer term 2 charges must 
be paid during the first seven days of instruction with the remainder 
due during the following month. There is a finance charge of 1 percent 
of the total amount deferred, or $2, whichever is greater, when charges 
are paid in installments (amount subject to change). 

Students who pay their accounts on the installment plan and later 
withdraw from the University, or reduce their registration to a lower 
credit range after the established refund deadline date, are liable for 
the full amount of tuition and fees assessed. 

Installment payments are delinquent on the first day of the month 
after the date that payment is due. A delinquent service charge of 1.5 
percent per month, or $2 per month, whichever is greater, is added to 
delinquent accounts (amount subject to change). The delinquent 
service charge is applied to all items charged to the student account 
and for which payment is delinquent. 

Students who are in debt to the University at the end of any 
academic term may not be permitted to register in the University 
again. They are not entitled to receive diplomas or official statements 
or transcripts of credits until either the indebtedness has been paid or 
suitable arrangements for payment have been made, unless either 
there is a pending bankruptcy petition of the student seeking a 
discharge of all such indebtedness or all such indebtedness has been 
discharged. 

REFUNDS 



CANCELLATION OF REGISTRATION 

Individuals who have placed courses on their record prior to the 
beginning of the term and later decide not to attend the University 
may cancel their registration by 5:00 p.m. of the first day of instruction 
for the term and avoid all tuition and fee charges. Individuals who are 
ineligible to continue in the University for actions initiated by the 
University based on academic, disciplinary, or medical reasons before 
5:00 p.m. on the first day of instruction for the term have their 
registrations become void and are not entitled to student privileges. 

If a written request to cancel registration is received in the Office 
of Admissions and Records by 5:00 p.m. on the first day of instruction, 
a student's registration agreement will be cancelled and tuition and 
fees will not be charged. 

Students may not cancel their registration once they have used fee- 
supported services. If they leave the University, they must officially 
withdraw from the University. 

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY 

Students who have been charged tuition and/or fees and later with- 
draw from the University prior to the completion of 60 percent of the 
term receive a refund on a pro rata basis. Assessed tuition, the service 
fee, the general fee, and the transportation fee are refunded on a pro 
rata basis less 5 percent of the assessed amount or $100, whichever is 
less. The health insurance and health services fees are nonrefundable. 
Students continue to be covered by health insurance and are eligible 
to receive health services (if these fees were paid) until the first day of 
instruction for the following term. 

Before a refund is made to a student, the University must make a 
refund to appropriate financial aid programs providing assistance to 
the student. A student indebted to the University at the time of 
withdrawal will have the amount owed deducted from the amount of 
any refund available. 

Students permitted to pay tuition and fees on the installment plan, 
or who make no payment at all, and then withdraw from the Univer- 
sity, are liable for the full amount of tuition and fees originally 
assessed less applicable refunds. 

Special refund policies apply to those who withdraw to enter 
eithei active duty in the armed forces or other approved national 

defense sen n e 



STUDENT COSTS 



In case of extenuating circumstances, such as medically docu- 
mented serious illness or injury, exception to these refund periods 
may be made by the director of the Office of Admissions and Records. 
The petition form to request a refund is available at the Records 
• nter, 901 West Illinois Street. 

REDUCTION OF PROGRAM 

Students who paid tuition and/or fees and later reduce their registra- 
tion to a lower credit range receive full refund of the difference in 
tuition and fees specified for the ranges if the change is made during 
the periods listed below. Thereafter, no refund is allowed. 

— In a semester, twelve-week term, or eleven-week summer law 
program, full refund, except for the nonrefundable charge, during the 
first ten days of instruction; no refund thereafter; 

— In an eight-week summer term, full refund, except for the nonre- 
fundable charge, during the first seven days of instruction; no refund 
thereafter; and 

— For University terms of different lengths, refund periods are 
determined proportionately in accordance with the above principles. 

EXEMPTIONS AND WAIVERS OF TUITION AND FEES' 

Appearing below are the waivers and exemptions available to stu- 
dents and the conditions under which they are granted. 

Recipients of waivers have had the amount for the service actually 
assessed and then waived by University policy. Such recipients are 
therefore eligible to receive the benefits of the service provided by the 
charge. 

An exemption carries no original charge, so recipients are not 
eligible to receive the benefits of the services provided by the charge. 
Students exempt from any particular charge may make individual 
arrangements with the service provider; such arrangements are sub- 
ject to the policies of the individual provider. 

Unless otherwise exempted by Board of Trustees authorization, 
the payment of tuition and fees is required of academic employees of 
the University or allied agencies under appointment for less than 25 
percent of full-time service, and of staff employees under appoint- 
ment for less than 50 percent of full-time sen, ice. 

For tuition and fees assessment purposes, an appointment must be 
to an established position for a specific amount of time and a salary 
commensurate with the percentage of time required, and it must 
require service for not less than three-fourths of the academic term. 
Note: A term is defined as running from the first day of instruction 
through the last day of final examinations. Three-fourths of a term is 
defined as 91 calendar days in a semester and 41 calendar days during 
the eight-week summer term. Tuition and fees privileges do not apply 
to students employed on an hourly basis in either an academic or staff 
capacity, or to persons on leave without pay. 

University employees appointed to established civil service posi- 
tions whose rates of pay are determined by negotiation, prevailing 
rates, and union affiliation are not considered as paid on an hourly 
basis and are entitled to the same tuition and fees privileges accorded 
to other staff members under the regulations. 

A student who resigns an appointment, or whose appointment is 
cancelled before rendering service for at least three-fourths of the 
term, becomes subject to the full amount of the appropriate tuition and 
fees for that term unless the student withdraws from University 
classes at the same time or before the appointment becomes void, or 
the student has submitted a final thesis within one week after the 
resignation date. 

Students holding appointments — as academic employees, gradu- 
ate assistants, or fellows — to the close of the second semester, for 
whom tuition and /or the Service Fee have been provided by exemp- 
tion or waiver, are entitled to the same exemption of tuition and /or the 
Service Fee for the summer terms 1 and 2 immediately following, 
providing they hold no qualifying appointments during the summer. 

Tuition and fee waivers are not granted for the Executive MBA 
Program or other self-supporting programs.

ing w ithout salary in the instructional program of the University of 
Illinois College of Medicine at Urbana-Champaign. 

— Students on leave-of-absence status or reentry. 

— Illinois Teacher of the Year recipients. 

WAIVER OF TUITION 
Tuition is waived for: 

— All (acuity and academic professional employees (excluding gradu- 
ate assistants) of the University on appointment for at least 25 percent 
of full- time service, provided the appointments require service for not 
less than three-fourths of a term. This waiver also applies to employ- 
ees of certain specifically identified related agencies whose positions 
are considered equivalent to academic positions of the University. 

— Most graduate teaching and research assistants of the University 
on appointment for at least 25 percent but not more than 67 percent of 
full-time service. Their appointments must require service for not less 
than three-fourths of the term. 

However, depending on the student's curriculum, some graduate 
assistans will receive only a base rate tuition waiver (base rate is 
defined as the in-state graduate tuition rate, within the four tutition 
ranges, absent any differential). Units that enroll students who 
qualify only for base rate tutition waivers must provide written 
notification of the policy in advance, so that the students will know 
their status upon admission. 

Those on appointment for 68 percent or more of full-time service 
are eligible for waiver of the Service Fee only. Caution: Assistantship 
appointments are cumulative. For example, if a person holds two 
appointments, a 25-percent and a 50-percent assistantship appoint- 
ment, he or she is ineligible for a tuition waiver. 

— Students holding appointments — academic employees, graduate 
assistants, or fellows — to the close of the final term of an academic 
year, for whom tuition and /or the Service Fee have been provided 
through waiver, are entitled to a waiver of the same kinds of tuition 
and fees for the summer session or summer term immediately follow- 
ing, provided they hold no qualifying appointments during that 
summer session or term. Students holding summer session or sum- 
mer term appointments as fellows or as employees are subject to such 
tuition and fees as would be assessed in accordance with the principles 
expressed above. 

— Staff employees of the University, of any other institutions and 
agencies under the University Civil Service System, and of certain 
specifically identified related agencies in status appointments or in 
appointments designed to qualify for status in an established class 
(e.g., trainee, intern) for at least 50 percent of full-time services who 
register in regular University courses not to exceed: 

• eleven credit hours in a sememster if on a full-time appointment 
(Range II), or 

• five credit hours if on a 50% to 99% appointment (Range III) 

• provided they (1) meet conditions and eligibility for admission 
as prescribed by the Office of Admissions and Records, (2) are not 
students as defined in Civil Service Rule 7.7c, and (3) have enrollment 
approval of their employing department. Staff employees whose total 
registration is in a higher range than that authorized above pay only 
the difference between the waiver authorization and the higher range 
in which their total registration places them. 

— Staff employees in status, learner, trainee, apprentice, or provi- 
sional appointments may enroll without payment of tuition in regular 
courses directly related to their University employment not to exceed 
10 credit hours per semester provided they have made application 
and received prior approval for enrollment as required by procedures 
issued by the director of Staff Human Resources and set forth in Policy 
and Rules-Staff. 

— Holders of tuition waiver scholarships. 

— Holders of graduate tuition and fee waivers awarded by the 
Graduate College. 

— University of Illinois faculty, academic, and staff retirees. 

— Holders of grants or contracts from outside sponsors that provide 
payments to cover the total cost of instruction. 

— Cooperating teachers and administrators who receive assignment 
of practice teachers, who receive assignment of students meeting the 
clinical experience requirement in teacher education curricula, or who 
cooperate in research projects related to teacher education: one semes- 
ter, quarter, or summer session for each semester, quarter, or equiva- 



lent service rendered within two consecutive semesters. The waiver 
will apply to the semester, quarter, or summer session of registration, 
as designated by the student, that is concurrent with, or following, the 
term of service, but must be applied no later than one calendar year 
from the end of the term of service. Concurrent registration on more 
than one campus of the University or in University extramural courses 
constitutes one semester, quarter, or session of eligibility for waiver. 
A similar waiver is authorized for cooperating librarians, school- 
nurse teachers, social welfare field supervisors, developmental child 
care field supervisors, recreation field supervisors, health-education 
field supervisors, speech pathology supervisors, educational psychol- 
ogy supervisors, continuing education supervisors, industrial rela- 
tions field supervisors, and physicians who participate without salary 
in the instructional program of the University of Illinois College of 
Medicine at Urbana-Champaign. (Acceptance of more than one as- 
signment from any of the above listed offices during any one term will 
generate only one waiver.) 

— Illinois Teacher of the Year recipients. 

— Eligible Illinois senior citizens. (Persons desiring information and / 
or an application for this waiver should contact the Office of Student 
Financial Aid, 620 East John Street, Champaign, IL 61820.) 

— Children of eligible employees of state universities. Illinois Public 
Act 87-0793 (SB1353) provides, if certain eligibility criteria are met, a 
50-percent tuition waiver for undergraduate education for children of 
University employees to attend any campus of the Illinois senior 
public universities. 

WAIVER OF THE NONRESIDENT PORTION OF TUITION 

Nonresident portion of tuition is waived for: 

— Faculty, academic professional and staff employees on appoint- 
ment for at least 25 percent of full-time service with the University or 
with specifically identified related agencies, provided the appoint- 
ment requires service for not less than three-fourths of the term. 

— The faculties of state-supported institutions of higher education in 
Illinois holding appointments of at least one-fourth time, provided the 
appointments require service for not less than three-fourths of the 
term. 

— The teaching and professional staff (such as counselors, school 
psychologists, school social workers, librarians, and administrators) 
in the private and public elementary and secondary schools in Illinois 
who hold appointments at least one-fourth time, and for not less than 
three-fourths of the term. 

— The spouses and dependent children of faculty, academic profes- 
sional and staff employees and graduate assistants on appointment 
with the University or certain specifically identified related agencies 
for at least 25 percent of full-time service, and of those listed in the 
second item above. (Dependent children are those who qualify as 
dependents for federal income tax purposes.) 

— The spouses and dependent children of fellows and trainees who 
are employed as teaching assistants to the fullest extent permitted by 
their fellowship appointments. 

— Persons actively serving in one of the armed forces of the United 
States who are stationed and present in the state of Illinois in connec- 
tion with that service and their spouses and dependent children, as 
long as the military persons remain stationed, present, and living in

STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE 

The University Board of Trustees requires all students to be covered 
by health insurance through either a program provided by the Univer- 
sity or one determined to be equivalent to that offered by the Univer- 
sity. Tuition and fee waivers do not apply to the student insurance fee. 

The Student Insurance Office is permanently located at 807 South 
Wright Street, Suite 480, Champaign. For the semester periods when 
the Registration Service Center is open, an insurance station is oper- 
ated in the Illini Union for the first (fall) semester. During the times the 
Registration Service Center station is open, all exemptions, reinstate- 
ments, and applications for coverage must be made at that location. 
Students should consult the current Timetable for the dates and times 
of the Registration Service Center activities. 

Students registered in University classes for residence work are 
assessed a fee each registration to cover the cost of the program. A 
student presenting evidence of equivalent medical insurance cover- 
age (a copy of the insurance policy or a schedule of benefits) may be 
exempted from payment of this fee upon approval of a petition 
submitted IN PERSON at the Insurance Office (or other location 
specified in the current Timetable) by no later than the final date 
established each term for a refund of tuition and fees. A signed waiver 
and assumption of responsibility is also required. An exemption will 
continue in effect until such time as the student requests reinstatement 
to the plan, or does not respond to a periodic request to confirm that 
he/she continues to be covered by another health plan, or three 
consecutive semesters of non-registered status. (NOTE: summer term 
2 is a semester.) Reinstatement may also be requested at any other time 
up to the last day of coverage for a semester or term. Reinstatement is 
guaranteed if application is within 31 days of the termination of other 
insurance; after 31 days, or at any other time, reinstatement is subject 
to approval of a statement of medical history. If medical history is 
approved, a pre-existing condition limitation will be applicable for the 
first 120 days of coverage. The premium is not prorated for a partial 
semester of coverage. 

— First (fall) semester coverage extends through the Friday before 
the first day of class for the second (spring) semester. 

— Second (spring) semester coverage extends through the Friday 
before the first day of class for the eight-week summer term 2. 

— Summer session coverage extends through the Friday before the 
first day of class for the first (fall) semester. 

Premium rates for each semester or term may be found in the 
respective Timetable. 

Married students may purchase student health insurance to cover 
spouses and dependent children upon application and payment of an 
additional premium at the Student Insurance Office location in the 
Registration Service Center while open. (The last day the Registration 
Service Center is open is the deadline to purchase dependent coverage 
for that semester/ term.) Application and premium payments must be 
made for each semester or term. Premiums for spouses and children 
may not be charged to student accounts. 

Petitions for exemption or reinstatement, and applications for 
dependent or extension of coverage must be submitted IN PERSON. 
Therefore, any petitions and applications that are mailed to the 
Student Insurance Office or included with payments made by mail 
will be returned to the sender without action; such items must be 
resubmitted by the student in person within the stated deadline for the 
term in question. Students who fail to present this information before 
the Registration Service Center closes will be required to participate in 
the Student Health Insurance Program for that semester /term. For 
more information, call 217/333-0165 or visit our Web site at 
webster.uihr.uiuc.edu/students. 



Financial Aid 



Financial aid programs are designed to provide assistance to students 
who otherwise would not be able to pursue a post-secondary educa- 
tion. A basic principle of most aid programs is that students and their 
parents pay for an education according to their capabilities. Therefore, 
student financial aid programs are designed to supplement — not 
replace — a family's contribution toward educational costs. 

Even with relatively low tuition and fee charges, the cost of a 
college education still can be a financial burden for many families. 
(Estimated expenses for an undergraduate student at the University 
appear in Table 3 of the Tuition and Fee Schedule.) However, no 
student should fail to apply for admission because his or her family 
feels unable to pay the full cost of a college education. 

The Office of Student Financial Aid (Student Services Arcade 
Building, 620 East John Street, Champaign IL 61820) administers most 
federal, state, and institutional financial aid programs at the Univer- 
sity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. If a family's resources are 
determined to be insufficient to meet necessary educational expenses, 
financial aid in the form of loans, employment, grants, and/or schol- 
arships may be made available to the student and his or her parent(s). 

Staff Members in the Office of Student Financial Aid are available 
to help those seeking information on financial assistance. Office hours 
are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except on all- 
campus holidays. Students and their parents may call the office at 
(217) 333-0100 or visit its home page at http://www.osfa.uiuc.edu. 



APPLYING FOR AID 



Students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid 
(FAFSA ) to apply for all need-based financial aid administered by the 
Office of Student Financial Aid — including federal, state, and institu- 
tional grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study. Those continuing 
students who filed a FAFSA to apply for aid during the preceding 
academic year should receive a Reneival FAFSA directly from the 
federal processor around January or February prior to the academic 
year for which aid is desired. Students who are applying for aid for the 
first time should complete and submit to the federal processor a 
regular FAFSA. FAFSAs are available at most college or university 
financial aid offices, or from most high school guidance counselors 
and libraries. 

When completing the Reneival FAFSA or regular FAFSA, students 
should identify the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as the 
school to which the information on the FAFSA should be sent. In Step 
Six, they should list Federal School Code: 001775; College Name: 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; College Address: 620 
East John Street; City: Champaign; State: IL. All students must follow 
the instructions for question 28. DO NOT leave this question blank. 

The University's preferential filing date for financial aid is mid- 
March prior to the academic year for which aid is desired. All requests 
for assistance filed by March 15 will be given equal consideration for 
campus-based aid (awards made by the Office of Student Financial 
Aid). Students who apply after March 15 will be considered for the 
Federal Pell Grant and Federal Direct Loans, but will receive campus- 
based aid only if funds are still available. Because eligibility for need- 
based financial aid depends upon a family's financial situation, which 
can change on an annual basis, students must reapply for financial aid 
each year. 

After a student completes a FAFSA, he or she should send it to the 
U.S. Department of Education's federal processor in the envelope 
provided with the application. Applying a needs-analysis formula to 
the information the student provides on the FAFSA, the federal 
processor will determine his or her Expected Family Contribution 
(EFC) — the amount that the federal processor calculates the student 
and his or her family should be able to contribute toward that 
student's college education during the academic year. The processing 
time usually takes four to six weeks from the time the processor 
receives your FAFSA. 

Upon determining the student's EFC, the federal processor will 
mail to him or her a Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR explains how 
the EFC was calculated, as well as whether the student has been 
selected for a process called verification. Approximately 30 percent of 
all financial aid applicants are selected for verification and are re- 
quired to submit to the Office of Student Financial Aid copies of 
documents from which the Office can ensure the accuracy of the 
information provided on the FAFSA. (These documents include, but 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



are not limited to, copies of the student's and/or his or her parents' 
federal tax returns). The student should read and follow any instruc- 
tions on the front of the SAR. 

The Office of Student Financial Aid will receive the student's 
needs-analysis information from the federal processor electronically 
and will determine his or her financial need and eligibility for aid by 
subtracting his or her EFC from the estimated cost of attendance. 

AWARD LETTERS 

After the Office of Student Financial Aid has received the student's 
data from the federal processor and calculated his or her financial 
need, it will determine the types and amounts of aid for which the 
student is eligible. Then the Office will send the student a Student 
Financial Aid Award Letter. Students should read their Award Letters 
carefully and thoroughly, and follow any instructions. To receive aid 
without unnecessary delays, students need to follow through on each 
required procedure. 

SOURCES OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 

There are several types of financial aid available. As the University's 
funds are limited, students should seek assistance provided by na- 
tional, state, and local organizations. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

Most University merit-based scholarships are awarded by academic 
departments or colleges. Usually, departments notify students if they 
are eligible to receive a scholarship on the basis of their academic 
records or admissions information. 

There are many scholarships that are offered and awarded by 
private corporations and nonprofit organizations each year. While it 
is the student's responsibility to search and apply for such scholar- 
ships, there are scholarship search services available to help. Two such 
services are the Illinois Student Assistance Commission's Higher 
EdNet service and an online servicecalled FastWEB. For more informa- 
tion about both of these services, please see the Office of Student 
Financial Aid Web page (http://www. osfa.uiuc.edu). 

GRANTS 

The Office of Student Financial Aid automatically considers students 
for each of the grant programs it administers when the student applies 
for aid using the FAFSA. Students do not complete a separate applica- 
tion for these grants. 

Two major sources of financial assistance for undergraduate stu- 
dents are the Federal Pell Grant and the Illinois Student Assistance 
Commission (ISAC) Monetary Award Program (MAP) grant. For 
2000-01, Federal Pell Grant awards ranged from $400 to $3300 and 
ISAC MAP grants ranged from $300 to $4730. 

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant is a 
program distinct from the Federal Pell Grant. The federal government 
annually provides post-secondary institutions with allocations from 
which awards are made. During 2000-01, awards ranged from $100 to 
$2,500. 

Students for Equal Access to Learning (SEAL) and Student-to- 
Student Matching (STSM) grant programs are funded by voluntary 
student contributions and matching funds provided by the state 
through the Illinois Student Assistance Commission. Students at 
Urbana-Champaign initiated the SEAL program by referendum in 
1970 and have reaffirmed it every four years since then. STSM grants 
are awarded in accordance to rules prescribed by the Illinois Student 
AssistanceCommission. During academic year 2000-01, awards ranged 
from $100 to $1,000. 

EMPLOYMENT: A FORM OF SELF-HELP FINANCIAL AID 

I he < )fli< <• (il Student I mam i.il Aid otters employment assistance to 

University itudente seeking part-time work. The University employs 

more than 14,000 part-time student workers across campus. Each 

year, these .indents e,irn more than $1 1 million. Additionally, many 

o I in the© immunity. 

i [ourly wages for student workers vary according to the type of 

work and n- port abilities involved, but equal at least minimum wage. 

Prom 10 to 15 hours of work per week. 



FEDERAL WORK-STUDY 

Federal Work-Study is a financial aid program that helps colleges and 
universities provide jobs for students. To participate in the program, 
a student must apply for financial aid and have a Federal Work-Study 
award as part of a financial aid package from the Office of Student 
Financial Aid. 

STUDENT LOANS: ANOTHER FORM OF SELF-HELP 
FINANCIAL AID 

The Office of Student Financial aid offers University of Illinois Long- 
Term Loans and Federal Perkins Loans to students demonstrating 
considerable financial need. These loans carry an interest rate of 5 
percent and repayment is deferred until six months after the borrower 
ceases to be a full-time student. 

FEDERAL DIRECT STUDENT LOANS 

The University of Illinois participates in the William D. Ford Federal 
Direct Student Loan program. Under the Direct Loan program, the 
University disburses loans directly to students through funds re- 
ceived from the federal government. All students who apply for 
financial aid using the FAFSA and who are enrolled at least half-time 
are automatically considered for Direct Loans by the Office of Student 
Financial Aid. 

Subsidized Direct Loans are available to students demonstrating 
financial need. The interest subsidy is paid by the federal government 
while the borrower is in school, and payments are deferred until six 
months after the borrower ceases to be enrolled at least half-time. 
Based on year in school and financial need, students may borrow up 
to annual maximums set by the federal government. At the freshman 
level (under 30 credit hours), a student may borrow up to $2,625; at the 
sophomore level (30-59 credit hours), $3,500; and at the junior and 
senior levels (60+ credit hours), $5,500. The aggregate maximum that 
a student can borrow for undergraduate study is $23,000. The interest 
rate varies, but the maximum is 8.25 percent. 

Parents of dependent students can borrow a Federal Direct PLUS 
Loan through the Direct Loan program For each dependent student 
each year parents may borrow up to educational costs minus the 
amount of other aid the student receives. Payments begin while the 
student is still in school. The interest rate varies, but the maximum is 
9 percent. 

Graduate students and students who meet the federal government's 
definition of an independent student (defined on the FAFSA) gener- 
ally are eligible to borrow unsubsidized Direct Loans in addition to 
subsidized Direct Loans. While payments on the amount borrowed 
are deferred until the student borrower leaves school, and a relatively 
attractive interest rate (maximum 8.25 percent) is charged, interest 
accrues while the student is in school. Based on class level and the 
amount of any subsidized Direct Loans that the student is receiving, 
independent undergraduates may borrow up to the following annual 
amounts: freshman, $6,625; sophomore, $7,500; and juniors and se- 
niors, $10,500. 

SPECIALIZED AID PROGRAMS 

Although most guidelines for awarding financial aid to Urbana- 
Champaign students are determined by the Office of Student Finan- 
cial Aid, some aid programs are administered by groups and agencies 
to which the student applies directly. Such programs include the 
Illinois Veterans Grants, Illinois Department of Children and Family 
Services Assistance, Illinois Department of Rehabilitation Services, 
Children of Veterans Scholarships, General Assembly Scholarships, 
Illinois National Guard/Naval Militia Scholarships, Illinois Reserve 
Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) Scholarships, and MIA-POW De- 
pendents Grants. For more information about these scholarships, 
students should visit the Office of Student Financial Aid home page at 
http://www. osfa.uiuc.edu or contact the administering agency di- 
rectly. 

SHORT-TERM LOANS 

To meet expenses in emergencies, undergraduates may borrow up to 
$400 for approximately 30 days or until the last day of instruction for 
the semester, whichever comes first. To make more money available 
to a maximum number of students, applicants should borrow as little 
as is necessary for as short a period oJ time as possible. A service fee 
of $3 is charged. The interest charge on overdue short-term loans is 18 
percent annually on the unpaid balance. 

Students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents should 
apply in person to the Office of Student Financial Aid. Students are 



SPECIAL PROGRAMS 



required to provide their i-atrds for identification. International stu- 
dent- (noneitizens who are not in the United States as permanent 
residents) should contact the Office of International Student Affairs 
(610 East John Street, Champaign IL 61820) for information. 

Precollege Programs 



PROGRAMS FOR FRESHMEN 

The University offers fall semester freshmen the opportunity to com- 
plete required testing in the spring and to become acquainted with the 
campus, and then to receive academic advising and complete registra- 
tion during a summer two-day period prior to the beginning of the fall 
semester. These opportunities are explained fully in the booklet Get 
Ready, which is sent to all accepted applicants. 

Freshmen entering in the fall semester who do not participate in 
the placement testing and summer orientation/registration programs 
must complete their required testing, academic advising, and class 
scheduling during the week immediately preceding the start of classes. 
Thus, participation in the precollege sessions is strongly urged to 
ensure a smooth transition to the University environment. 

Freshmen entering the University during the spring semester 
must complete required testing, academic advising, and registration 
during the week immediately preceding the start of classes. 

PLACEMENT TESTING 

Placement tests are designed to help determine the levels at which 
students are best prepared to begin University study in particular 
subject areas. Scores of these tests are used for initial placement 
purposes only and are not recorded on student official academic 
records. The requirements for placement testing vary by college and 
curriculum, and the Get Ready booklet provides full details on the tests. 

During March, April, and May, beginning freshmen come to either 
the Urbana-Champaign campus or to the University of Illinois at 
Chicago campus to participate in a one-day program of required 
testing. The tests taken during this day are the Rhetoric Essay Test, and 
placement tests in mathematics, chemistry, and foreign languages. 
These tests must be taken by admitted students if they had these 
subjects in high school, but have not received college credit for them. 

Students who live outside of Illinois and more than 250 miles from 
Champaign-Urbana have the option of completing placement testing 
on the first day of the orientation/registration program. 

An admitted freshman who fails to complete all required testing 
during the spring will be assessed a $25 late fee (amount subject to 
change) to take the tests immediately preceding the start of summer 
orientation if (1) the freshman is a resident of Illinois and /or lives less 
than 250 miles from Champaign-Urbana (2) the Notice of Admission 
to the University is dated prior to May 1 . 

ACADEMIC ADVISING AND ORIENTATION/REGISTRATION 

A student who has completed the testing required by his or her college 
may participate in the two-day orientation/registration program 
conducted at the Urbana-Champaign campus during June and July. 
During that period, the student has an opportunity to learn about the 
expectations of professors and the level of academic standards at the 
University, as well as the chance to interact with other entering 
students and currently enrolled University students. Additionally, 
the new student is able to receive his or her student identification card 
and to become acquainted with the physical arrangement of the 
campus, housing facilities, and many other facets of campus life. If 
interested, the student also has the opportunity to audition for band 
and receive information on joining choral groups during new student 
week. 

The student's stay culminates in a meeting with an academic 
adviser who provides information about academic opportunities and 
requirements and assists the student in selecting a schedule of courses 
for the fall semester. 

A program charge includes one night's accommodations, three 
meals, and program events. The program charge is waived for any 
student who received an admission application fee waiver based on 
extreme financial hardship. 



PROGRAMS FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS 

New transfer students have the opportunity to register for the fall 
semester during a special one-day program held during the summer. 
At that time, the student meets with an academic adviser to discuss the 
transfer of credit for all previous college course work, to learn his or 
her status in terms of progress toward a degree from the University, 
and to select classes for the fall. The student also has the opportunity 
to meet in a small group with currently enrolled University students, 
to interact with other entering students, and to receive his or her 
student identification card. Each transfer student receives details of 
the advance enrollment program in the Get Ready booklet mailed with 
the Notice of Admission. 

Transfer students entering the University during the spring se- 
mester must complete academic advising and registration during the 
week immediately preceding the start of classes. 

PROGRAM FOR PARENTS 

Parents of beginning freshmen are cordially invited and encouraged 
to accompany their sons and daughters to the campus for the summer 
program and to participate in a Parent Orientation Program. Through 
a variety of information sessions, parents will have the opportunity to 
meet and speak with campus administrators, faculty, students, and 
members of the Mothers and Dads Associations. A program charge 
includes one night's accommodations, three meals, and program 
events. Parents likewise may take advantage of the opportunity to 
tour the campus.

Special Programs 



Because of the comprehensive nature of the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign, arrangements for talented and highly motivated 
students differ among the various colleges and departments. Gener- 
ally speaking, talented and highly motivated students are able to enter 
special courses or special sections of courses as freshmen and sopho- 
mores and are encouraged as juniors and seniors to participate in 
special programs for majors offered by the many departments. For 
details of these arrangements, see the descriptions in the college 
sections of this catalog. 

Policies and procedures regarding placement and proficiency 
examinations, the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), and 
the Advanced Placement Program are published in the current edition 
of Opportunities for Advanced Credit, a brochure available at college 
offices or by writing to the Office of Admissions and Records, Univer- 
sity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 901 West Illinois Street, Urbana, 
IL 61801, (217) 333-0302. 

ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM 

The Advanced Placement Program, administered by the College 
Entrance Examination Board, is designed for high school students 
who are about to enter college and wish to demonstrate their readiness 
for courses more advanced than those usually studied in the freshman 
year. Advanced classes are offered in many high schools in one or 
more of the following subjects: American and comparative govern- 
ment and politics, art history, art studio, computer science, English 
language and composition, English literature and composition, French 
language, French literature, German language, Latin, Spanish lan- 
guage, Spanish literature, biology, chemistry, mathematics (calculus), 
micro- and macroeconomics, physics, psychology, music theory, statis- 
tics, and social studies (American history and European history). A 
national examination in each subject, administered in May by the 
Educational Testing Service, is designed to measure the competence 
of students in terms of the point at which college study in that subject 
should begin. The University encourages high schools and their 
outstanding students to participate in this program. 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



Examinations are prepared and graded by national committees of 
high school and college teachers. They are graded on the following 
scale: 5, high honors; 4, honors; 3, creditable; 2, pass; and 1, fail. Grade 
reports are sent to the universities each student specifies at the time of 
the examination. Each department within the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign has the option of granting, or not granting, col- 
lege credit and advanced placement on the basis of the board's grade. 

Transfer students should refer to the section on Acceptance of 
Nontraditional Transfer Credit for the policy on accepting credit 
earned through the Advanced Placement Program. 

Specific credit recommendations for beginning freshmen at the

SPECIAL PROGRAMS 



INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE EXAMINATIONS 

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, sponsored by a Swiss 
foundation, offers a curriculum covering either the last two years of 
secondary education or the twelfth and thirteenth grades in a thirteen- 
grade system. Successful completion of the program is based on the 
completion of course work and passage of internationally prepared 
examinations. The examinations are written at two levels of study: 
High Level, administered after a minimum of 240 hours of teaching 
time in a subject; and Subsidiary Level, administered after a minimum 
of 160 hours of teaching time in a subject. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will award profi- 
ciency credit to new, continuing, and transfer students on the basis of 
scores from several International Baccalaureate examinations: anthro- 
pology, biology, chemistry, classics (Latin and Greek), economics, 
French, German, history, and philosophy. University departments 
establish policies for awarding proficiency credit and advanced place- 
ment for each score on the IB scale of 1 to 7. Those wishing to have such 
examination scores evaluated should request that official score tran- 
scripts be sent to the Division of Measurement and Evaluation, Uni- 
versity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 247 Armory Building, 505 
East Armory Avenue, Champaign, IL 61820. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may accept, for 
transfer purposes, IB credit awarded by another institution if the 
transfer student meets two requirements: (1) the student must have 
earned at least 12 semester hours of graded college-level classroom 
credit at that same institution or campus, and (2) the student must 
have earned classroom credit for a more advanced course in the same 
subject area at that same institution. The advanced course must be 
fully acceptable under University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
transfer credit policies. Transfer students who have not met these 
requirements may request that official copies of their scores be sent to 
the Division of Measurement and Evaluation. Such scores will be 
evaluated using the same standards applied to the scores of continu- 
ing students at the University. 

The specific credit and placement policies for International Bacca- 
laureate examinations recognized by this campus are given below. 
This information is subject to change upon annual review by each 
department concerned.

PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS 



credit for PHIL 101 



Proficiency examinations are offered in most courses open to fresh- 
men and sophomores. A student may take proficiency examinations 
in more advanced undergraduate courses on recommendation of the 
head or chairperson of the department in which the course is offered 
and approval of the dean of the student's college. Departmental 
proficiency examinations are administered in individual sessions or 
scheduled group sessions during the semester. Departmental offices 
can provide information regarding test dates, places of administra- 
tion, types of examination, and references that might be used when 
preparing for examinations. Course descriptions and prerequisites 
are listed in the Courses catalog. (See the inside back cover of this 
publication for locations at which the Courses catalog may be ob- 
tained.) Proficiency examinations are generally given without cost to 
students, but fees may be charged to defray the cost of proficiency 
examinations prepared by agencies outside the University. 

All regulations governing proficiency examinations will be ap- 
plied in the context that the University must reasonably accommodate 
a student's religious beliefs, observances, and practices in regard to 
scheduling of proficiency examinations if the student informs the 
person responsible for the scheduling of such examinations of the 
conflict within one week after being informed of the examination 
schedule. Any student may appeal an adverse decision. 

An enrolled undergraduate student who passes a proficiency 
examination is given credit toward graduation for the amount regu- 
larly allowed in the course (1) if it does not duplicate credit counted for 
admission to the University or credit earned through some other 
testing program and (2) if it is acceptable in the student's curriculum. 
No official record is made of failures in these examinations, but some 
departments may keep records to prohibit students from retaking the 
examinations. General campus policy information regarding profi- 
ciency examinations can be found in the Code of Policies and Regulations 
Applying to All Students. 

Transfer students should consult the Admission for Transfer Ap- 
plicants section for the policy on acceptance of proficiency credit for 
admission purposes. 

COLLEGE-LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP) 

This program exists for the purpose of awarding proficiency credit, or 
otherwise recognizing college-level competence achieved outside the 
college classroom. Two types of tests are available: (1) the general 
examination covers the broad content of a study that might be ex- 
pected to be covered by several introductory-level courses, and (2) the 
subject matter examination covers the specific content of a single 
college course. Credit can be earned and will be recognized by the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for some CLEP General 
Examinations, but credit is not awarded for any of the CLEP Subject 
Matter Examinations. 

Most students must fulfill general education requirements for 
degree purposes in four areas: humanities, social science /history, 
biological science, and physical science. CLEP General Examinations 
in humanities and social science can be used to earn waivers of the 
corresponding general education requirements, or parts of them, and 
to earn degree credit. Credit is not awarded by the University for 
scores from the CLEP General Examinations in English composition, 
mathematics, or natural science. A CLEP test provides an opportunity 
for a student to demonstrate knowledge in a general subject area that 
is as thorough as that required of a graduate who has not majored in 
that particular area. General education requirements are designed to 
ensure that graduates of the University are generalists as well as 
specialists. The University recognizes that this general knowledge 
may have been acquired by entering students through high school 
work, independent study, extracurricular reading, projects, or work 
experience. CLEP General Examination scores can be used to earn 3 or 
6 credit hours and waiver of all or part of the requirement in each of 
the two general education areas. College policies vary in terms of the 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



tests that are acceptable for earning credit and waiver, and in terms of 
the scores required for partial or complete waiver of a requirement. 

Students may take CLEP examinations at any CLEP National 
Testing Center designated by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), 
Box 966, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. Official score reports should be 
sent by ETS to Coordinator, Placement and Proficiency Testing, 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 247 Armory Building, 
505 East Armory Avenue, Champaign, IL 61820. Locations of CLEP 
National Testing Centers and test administration dates may be ob- 
tained by writing to ETS, or by inquiring at most college and high 
school counseling offices. 

CLEP test scores earned by beginning freshmen at the Urbana- 
Champaign campus, including students with less than 12 semester 
hours of transferable classroom credit attempted at other collegiate 
institutions, are evaluated for credit according to norms established 
for the campus. Transfer students should refer to the section on 
Acceptance of Nontraditional Transfer Credit for the policy on accept- 
ing credit earned through CLEP examinations. 

CLEP examination scores reported by the Defense Activity for 
Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) testing centers will be 
evaluated against the same criteria that are applied to continuing 
students on the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

CAMPUS HONORS PROGRAM 

The Campus Honors Program (CHP) offers special challenges and 
opportunities to a small number of academically talented and highly 
motivated undergraduate students. It fosters collaborative relation- 
ships between students and distinguished faculty through small 
intensive classes, a faculty mentor system for introducing students to 
the intellectual standards and methodologies of academic disciplines, 
and informal contacts encouraged by cocurricular offerings. CHP 
sponsors four series of noncredit cocurricular events: a "Scholar 
Adventurers" lecture series on faculty research; a "Study Abroad at 
Home" series of seminar-workshops centering on other cultures; a 
series of dress-rehearsal visits at Krannert Center for the Performing 
Arts; and an "International Tasting Club" lunch series. The aim is to 
encourage breadth and excellence from the outset of the student's 
college career, and to facilitate interaction with scholars at the cutting 
edge of their disciplines. 

Only approximately 125 new students can be admitted to the CHP 
each year as first-year students. A few additional students, however, 
may join the program on an off-cycle basis at the beginning of the 
sophomore year. Designated as Chancellor's Scholars, CHP students 
may be enrolled in any undergraduate curriculum. Those who meet 
retention requirements continue as Chancellor's Scholars throughout 
their undergraduate career. Required CHP course work is concen- 
trated in the freshman and sophomore years when students take 
intensive and specialized versions of general education courses. At 
the junior and senior level, when students are necessarily involved in 
their majors, they are required to take one advanced CHP seminar. In 
short, the emphasis is on fundamental principles and interdiscipli- 
nary connections because the CHP is directed at students who desire 
an undergraduate education that is broad and general as well as 
professionally specialized. 

It is as important to understand what CHP is not, as to understand 
what it is. CHP courses represent additional opportunities for aca- 
demically gifted and ad venturous students; they are not an alternative 
curriculum. Basically, they provide an honors-quality way of satisfy- 
ing general education requirements for graduation and of helping 

' . - ! ' i.l l< i i lr., i ,-. i-i tin- 1 1 ili -I r i 'l.i I ii ii i'. between thrir null ( 1 1 si l(>] ine 

and other disciplines. Nor does CHP supplant or conflict with depart- 
mental honors programs. In consultation with their departmental 
academic advisers, Chancellor's Scholars develop their own combina- 
tion of regular and CHP courses. Accordingly, most of the courses 
' I IP irudents take are regular University offerings. 

Most importantly, CI DP is a challenge. A Chancellor's Scholar 
must make a special commitmenf to the intellectual life, and to the 
dialogue and community in the I lonors I louse.

ADMISSION 

Entering freshmen with high ACT/SAT scores and exceptional high 
school records are invited by CHP to apply for admission to the 
program, but any incoming or currently enrolled freshman may ask to 
be considered. Acceptance is based upon such factors as standardized 
test scores, high school class rank and grade point average, evidence 
of creative and leadership abilities as displayed in extracurricular 
interests and activities, the strength of application essays, and evi- 
dence of willingness to accept CHP challenges and contribute to the 
program. The Honors Program is open to students in all majors 
offered on the Urbana-Champaign campus, and an effort is made to 
ensure that each incoming class of Chancellor's Scholars is broadly 
representative of the curricula of the University as a whole. Students 
who are strongly motivated not only to excel, but also to make a 
difference at Illinois are sought for Chancellor's Scholars. 

For additional information or to obtain an application form, con- 
tact the Campus Honors Program, University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign, 1205 West Oregon Street, Urbana, IL 61801; (217) 244- 
0922. For full consideration, completed applications should be re- 
ceived by February 1 for admission the following fall. 

EDMUND). JAMES UNDERGRADUATE HONORS 
PROGRAMS 

Undergraduate honors programs, named for one of the University's 
distinguished presidents, Edmund J. James, provide a number of 
special curricular opportunities to academically talented undergradu- 
ate students. Designation by the University as "James Scholars" 
recognizes students of extraordinary ability and achievement. It en- 
titles students to certain academic privileges, including the extended 
use of library facilities, and charges them with the responsibility for 
seeking sustained intellectual achievement throughout their under- 
graduate careers. James Scholar honors students are characterized by 
outstanding academic records; high general aptitudes for college 
work; and reputations for seriousness of purpose, persistence, and 
self-discipline in educational endeavors. 

Students enrolled in any undergraduate curriculum may elect to 
participate in the program; special academic arrangements are open to 
James Scholar honors students in all courses of study. These arrange- 
ments include provision of honors courses and sections, special semi- 
nars, and interdisciplinary colloquia. In addition, James Scholars are 
encouraged to pursue individual scholarly interests through indepen- 
dent study and research projects. There is no monetary award associ- 
ated with this program, and students who need financial assistance 
should apply to the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

NOMINATION PROCEDURES 

Academic requirements for participation in the program are deter- 
mined by the respective colleges. Undergraduates in most colleges 
ni.iv "self-nominate" into the program, provided that the decision is 
based on prior achievement and on high school and college faculty or 
administrative advice, and is accomplished prior to the terminal dates 
set for entry into academic programs leading to honors degrees. In the 
( ol leges oi I illicit ion, liberal Arts and Sciences, and Commerce and 
Business Administration, entering students with higher than a prede- 
termined college selection index are automatically admitted as James 
Scholar Designates. Students may elect to leave the program or may 
be removed for failure to meet standards of academic performance in 
the various colleges. 



SPECIAL PROGRAMS 



During summer orientation/ registration, freshmen in most col- 
leges w ill receive additional information regarding specific college 
programs leading to honors degrees. At that time, in consultation with 
art adviser, a student may self-nominate into the program and select 
an honors course or plan other honors activities. 

Although the honors program in each college varies in detail, any 
incoming freshman electing to undertake an honors program will 
enter the University as ajames Scholar Designate. After completion of 
a period on campus, each designated record will be reviewed by his 
or her college. The student then will be invited to continue annual 
certification as a James Scholar honors student or advised to leave the 
program on the basis of criteria developed by the college. Resident and 
transfer students wishing to self-nominate into the program should 
inquire at their college offices. 

JAMES SCHOLAR RECOGNITION 

Successful performance for one year as a James Scholar honors stu- 
dent is recognized and recorded on the student's University record as 
Edmund J. James Scholar (year). 

Specific inquiries regarding the honors program of a particular 
college may be addressed to the college office in care of the honors 
dean. 

HONORS CREDIT LEARNING AGREEMENTS 

It is not expected that a James Scholar honors student will take a full 
schedule of special courses; however, at least one honors activity each 
semester is considered normal. To encourage sustained independent 
intellectual activity by superior students, the campuswide Honors 
Credit Learning Agreement Program enables students to earn offi- 
cially recognized honors credit in regular undergraduate courses. 
This is accomplished by a learning agreement between student and 
instructor whereby the student undertakes a special course-related 
project. Upon successful completion of the project, the student is 
awarded transcript-designated honors credit for the course. Forms for 
initiation of honors credit learning agreements are available in the 
college offices. 

TRANSITION PROGRAM 

Established in 1986, the Transition Program is a campus-sponsored 
academic support program designed to provide assistance to a group 
of 100 students admitted each year who have academic weaknesses 
that could place them "at risk" if they were permitted to enter the 
University without such assistance. The goal of the program is to 
provide students with a home base where they feel comfortable about 
asking questions, expressing their concerns, and receiving the sup- 
port, advice, and encouragement they need to be academically suc- 
cessful at, and to graduate from, the University of Illinois. Students are 
consistently encouraged to succeed; more important, they are shown 
how to succeed in the college classroom. 

These bright and talented students are admitted to the University 
through the Educational Opportunities Program and placed in the 
Transition Program, housed in the College of Liberal Arts and Sci- 
ences, where they will receive developmental academic support for 
two years. After a student has successfully completed four semesters 
in the Transition Program, an admission space is reserved in the 
college and /or curriculum of his or her choice, if the student is in good 
academic standing (C average or better) and has completed the 
required core courses for admission to that college and/or curricu- 
lum. 

The Transition Program is divided into two major components — 
the Summer Bridge component and an academic year component. 
Both components provide the student with: 

1. Intensive academic and career counseling. 

2. Extensive academic and personal support services plus opportu- 
nities to enroll in support-based sections of existing courses. 

3. Comprehensive developmental skills as well as enhancement and 
enrichment activities. 

Only those students who officially apply to the University in the 
standard manner prescribed by the Office of Admissions and Records 
and who meet established campus and program deadlines for appli- 
cation will be considered for admission and placement in the Transi- 
tion Program. The final decision on which students will be admitted 
and placed in the Transition Program is the joint responsibility of the 
director of the Office of Admissions and Records and the director of 



the Transition Program, acting on behalf of the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences. 

GENERAL CRITERIA FOR PLACEMENT IN THE TRANSITION 
PROGRAM 

An applicant with a score of 17 or lower on the ACT English subtest 
area (320 on the SAT Verbal subtest area) or a score of 17 or lower on 
the ACT mathematics subtest area (350 on the SAT Math subtest area) 
is eligible for admission consideration through participation in the 
Educational Opportunities Program and placement in the Transition 
Program. In some cases, an interview with a Transition Program staff 
member may be required before an admission decision can be reached. 

BRIDGE ADMISSION 

An applicant with a score of 15 or lower on the ACT English subtest 
area or a score of 16 or lower on the ACT mathematics subtest area is 
eligible for admission consideration only through participation in the 
Educational Opportunities Program and placement in the Summer 
Bridge component of the Transition Program, unless there is strong 
evidence that participation in Summer Bridge is not necessary for the 
applicant's success. (Other applicants may be invited or required to 
participate in the Transition Program or the Summer Bridge compo- 
nent if, in the judgment of the director of the Office of Admissions and 
Records and the director of the Transition Program, such participation 
is necessary for the applicants' success at the University.) 

A student who meets Summer Bridge criteria will be required to 
complete placement tests designed for the Transition Program, fol- 
lowed by a personal interview with a program staff member before an 
admission decision can be reached. 

Eligibility of Summer Bridge participants to continue enrollment 
in the fall semester is contingent upon acceptable academic perfor- 
mance in the summer program and recommendation by the director 
of the Transition Program. 

THE SUMMER BRIDGE COMPONENT 

Each summer, 50 of the 100 students selected for placement in the 
Transition Program are required to participate in a six-week residen- 
tial summer session on the Urbana-Champaign campus sponsored by 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The session engages these 
students in intensive course work in mathematics, composition, and 
basic skills development. In addition, Summer Bridge participants are 
provided with a variety of cultural enrichment activities and orienta- 
tion to University resources, support services, and campus living. 

The Summer Bridge experience is provided at no cost to the students. 
Each participant receives institutional financial assistance to cover the 
cost of tuition, room, board, and books. In addition, with the exception 
of students who will participate in intercollegiate athletics and who are not 
eligible for such added financial assistance under current National Collegiate 
Athletic Association regulations, each participant receives a stipend of a 
modest weekly allowance and a lump-sum payment at the end of the 
summer session. 

Each Summer Bridge participant must successfully complete all 
course work with a grade of C or better before gaining admission for 
the fall semester. The Bridge experience offers students an invaluable 
opportunity to get a head start on their undergraduate education and 
to make important adjustments to the multiple demands of college 
life, including learning the difference between getting by and getting 
ahead. At the end of Summer Bridge, each student fully understands 
the relationship between hard work and success in the college class- 
room; the summer experience makes a significant difference. 

THE ACADEMIC YEAR COMPONENT 

Each fall, the successful Summer Bridge participants join the 50 other 
newly admitted Transition Program students. Each of the 200 Transi- 
tion Program students (including 100 returning sophomores) is as- 
signed to an adviser who is a graduate or professional student at the 
University. Each graduate adviser is responsible for providing aca- 
demic, career, and personal counseling to a group of 20 students; each 
student is required to meet with his or her graduate adviser at least 
once a week. The graduate advisers, along with the director and 
assistant director of the program, carefully monitor the academic 
progress of the students daily to ensure their success. 

In cooperation with various departments and colleges on campus, 
the Transition Program sponsors special sections of existing courses 
that are tailored to meet the students' individual needs. These courses 
are small and allow for extensive teacher-student interaction; in 
addition, the instructors for these courses meet regularly with the 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



program staff and submit weekly reports on the progress of the 
students. At no cost to the students, additional academic support is 
provided by the Office of Minority Student Affairs.

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES PROGRAM 



GENERAL NATURE AND PURPOSE 

The Educational Opportunities Program (EOP) was established in 
1968. It is administered by the Office of Minority Student Affairs and 
it provides academic services and counseling support to students who 
(1) have high potential but are academically underprepared for their 
major area or (2) come from backgrounds that are underrepresented 
on the Urbana campus. The program's emphasis is on supporting 
incoming students identified by the Office of Admissions and Records 
and college offices as being academically at risk in their preferred 
curricula. 

Students admitted through the program, along with many other 
students, receive financial support from federal loans and grants, 
Illinois Student Assistance Commission Monetary Awards, and Uni- 
versity tuition waivers. They also contribute toward their expenses 
through family contributions, summer and part-time employment, 
and personal loans. Supportive services for the program are provided 
by federal and University funds. 

Through the Educational Opportunities Program, the University 
is attempting to: 

— Admit students who otherwise might not be able to undertake a 
college-level program at a major educational institution, and assist 
them in completing a baccalaureate degree. Participants receive the 
same benefits as other students and additional support if required. 

— Increase the number of students from ethnic minority groups 
underrepresented on campus and raise the retention and graduation 
rates of participants. 

— Develop educational programs and policies, both academic and 
administrative, that will assist and support students in the program 
and that may well benefit all students. 

— Provide students not in the program the vital cultural and social 
experience of meeting, living with, and learning from students from 
other cultures. 

— Add ethnic diversity to the campus and ensure that all participants 
have a high probability of graduating from University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign. 

— Provide and disseminate to other educational institutions and 
agencies information that will increase their ability to deal with 
educational and sociological problems of students from nontradi- 
tional backgrounds. 

— Provide information on securing financial aid, student employ- 
ment, and postgraduate opportunities to program participants. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Admission to the Educational Opportunities Program is limited to 
applicants from Illinois who are educationally or economically disad- 
vantaged and who fall into one of the following categories: 

— Beginning freshmen who meet the high school subject pattern 
requirements and the high school rank and test score combinations 
prescribed for the colleges and curricula of their choice. 

— Students not meeting the stated academic requirements, if the 
deans of the colleges concerned and the director of admissions and 
records (or their designated representatives) concur. 

I ! should be noted that in BOme curricula, such as the performing arts 
and aviation, additional requirements must be met.

may be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records. 

SERVICES FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES 

The Division of Rehabilitation-Education Services is the designated 
office of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that obtains 
and files disability-related documents, certifies eligibility for disabil- 
ity services, determines reasonable accommodations, and develops 
plans for the provision of such accommodations for students and 
guests of the University with disabilities. Services offered by the 
Division include study skills consultation and training, academic and 
disability counseling, auxiliary aids (e.g., notetakers, lab or library 
assistance, interpreters, etc.), document conversion to alternative 
formats (e.g., Braille, tape, enlarged print, etc.), assistive listening 
devices, modified testing services, assistive computer technology, 
priority registration, time extensions, and numerous other services. 
For example, the Division offers physical therapy and functional 
training, housing for students requiring assistance in the performance 
of activities of daily living, accessible campus transportation, wheel- 
chair and equipment repair, financial aid assistance, and an interna- 
tionally acclaimed adapted sports program. The Division works closely 
with Campus Parking and the Housing Division to arrange appropri- 
ate housing and parking for students with disabilities. 

Prospective students are urged to contact the Division to request 
information about services and resources, and are strongly encour- 
aged to visit the campus and the Division of Rehabilitation-Education 
Services well in advance of enrollment to plan for their needs. The 
Division is located at 1207 South Oak Street, Champaign, IL 61820; 
(217) 333-1970 (V/TDD); Fax (217) 333-0248. 

COURSE ATTENDANCE BY ILLINOIS HIGH SCHOOL 
STUDENTS 

Qualified local high school students are permitted, while in high 
school, to attend University classes for college credit. They may also 
enroll for college credit in correspondence and extramural courses 
offered by the University. 

To qualify for high school and on-campus University concurrent 
enrollment, a student must be recommended by his or her high school 
principal and have a 3.5 (A = 4.0) grade point average and have 
prerequisite courses completed. Students are assessed tuition at the 
regular undergraduate nondegree Student rates. 

Courses taken by these students involve work over and above the 
secondary school curriculum. Grades and course credits will appear 
on their permanent University records and on official transcripts. If 
these students enter the University after high school graduation, the 
courses, if applicable, will be credited toward University graduation. 

A student applying for on-campus admission under this program 
should be prepared to submit the following materials upon request: 

— A nondegree application for admission to the University (not 
required of students who were previously enrolled under this plan). 

— An official copy of the high school transcript covering all work 
completed in high school and courses in progress, together with ACT 
or SAT test score if available. Acceptance under this program does not 
guarantee later acceptance as a degree candidate. 



GRADING SYSTEM AND OTHER REGULATIONS 



Information and applications for this program may be obtained 
from the Office of Admissions and Records at the address on the inside 

back cover. A separate undergraduate admission application is re- 
quired it a student desires to attend the University after high school 
graduation or under the Karly Admission Program described in the 
next section. 

\ student interested in correspondence study should request 
information and an application form from Guided Individual Study, 
Universitv of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Suite 1406, 302 East John 
Street, Champaign, 1L 61820. It is suggested that students begin 
correspondence study to coincide with the start of a fall or spring 
semester at the University. Applications should be submitted before 
the beginning of a semester. For the summer session, applications 
should be submitted by the middle of May. 

EARLY ADMISSION PROGRAM 

Under the Early Admission Program, a high school student meeting 
competitive admission requirements except receipt of a high school 
diploma may be enrolled in the University before graduating from high 
school. Although each application is treated as a special admission 
case, a prospective student must be at least 15 years of age by the time 
of desired term of enrollment, have earned 15 units toward a high 
school diploma, be in good academic standing, and be recommended 
by a high school staff member who is able to evaluate the student's 
work, and meet competitive admission standards. Those accepted in 
the program are enrolled in regular four-year curricula and treated as 
first-year students. 

A student interested in this program may apply for admission no 
sooner than January preceding the fall term of planned entry so that 
the application can include complete information about the student's 
fall semester. However, application should be completed as soon as 
possible after January 1. 

For complete information, contact the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the address on the inside back cover. 

DELAYED ADMISSION 

A person approved for admission may request that the admission be 
delayed for a maximum of one year to allow participation in nonaca- 
demic pursuits. An applicant who wishes to consider this alternative 
should request further information from the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the time that he or she accepts the admission offer since the 
program is limited. 

CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT WITH PARKLAND 

A student in good academic standing at Parkland College or at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may concurrently enroll 
in courses offered by the other institution if such courses are not 
available at the student's primary campus. Prior written approval for 
concurrent enrollment must be obtained from the dean of students at 
Parkland College and the appropriate college office at the University 
campus. 

Generally, concurrent enrollees must take fewer hours at the 
secondary institution than at the primary institution. Concurrent 
enrollees are part-time nondegree students at the secondary institu- 
tion and pay the tuition and fees regularly assessed at that institution 
in accordance with the amount of work taken. The application fee is 
waived. 

STUDY AWAY FROM CAMPUS 

The University permits a student who has been enrolled on campus 
for at least a semester or summer session, with the approval of the 
student's adviser and the appropriate departmental and college of- 
fices, to undertake independent study away from campus either in the 
United States or abroad. 

Colleges and departments may establish variable credit courses 
that permit students, upon payment of an appropriate fee, to continue 
enrollment in the University while studying away from campus. Final 
determination of credit is made by the department and college con- 
cerned. 

Overseas study programs offered by each college are described in 
the individual college sections of this catalog. 



Grading System and Other Regulations 

Academic, administrative, and conduct regulations are published in 
the Code of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students. Students are 
responsible for complying with these regulations of the University 
and those of the colleges and departments from which they take 
courses. This publication is available to students in the lobby of the 
Turner Student Services Building, at the Admissions and Records 
Building, and at the Information Desk in the Illini Union. The Code is 
also available on the World Wide Web at http://www.uiuc.edu/ 
admin_manual/code. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

Faculty members are responsible for providing the University with an 
individual evaluation of the work of each student in their classes. Final 
course grades are entered on the student's permanent University 
record at the close of each semester, term, or session. The University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign uses the following grading system: 
A = excellent; B = good; C = fair; D = poor (lowest passing grade); F = 
failure, including courses dropped for academic irregularities; Ab = 
absent from the final examination without an acceptable excuse 
(counts as a failure). If a student is absent from a final examination and 
it is clear that taking the examination could not have resulted in a 
passing grade for the course, a grade of F may be given instead of Ab. 
In addition to the above grades, instructors are authorized to assign 
plus and minus grades. 

COMPUTATION OF SCHOLASTIC AVERAGES 

For numerical computation of scholastic averages, the following 
values are designated: A+ = 4.0; A = 4.0; A- = 3.67; B+ = 3.33; B = 3.0; 
B- = 2.67; C+ = 2.33; C = 2.0; C- = 1.67; D+ = 1.33; D = 1.0; D- = 0.67; 
F = 0.0. 

UNIFORM METHOD FOR CALCULATION 

A uniform method for calculating undergraduate grade point aver- 
ages has been established for all undergraduate colleges on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus. These averages are calculated on the 
basis of all courses attempted for which grades and credits are 
assigned and that carry credit in accordance with the Courses catalog. 
Since courses offered by the religious foundations on or near the 
Urbana-Champaign campus are not official University courses and 
are not included in the Courses catalog, the grades earned in such 
courses will not be included in the calculation of any grade point 
averages. Grades of S, U, CR, NC, and Pass (see next section on Other 
Symbols in Use) are reported on official University transcripts but are 
not included in grade point averages since grade-points are not 
assigned to these letter grades. This method of calculation is used to 
determine honors, probation and drop status, financial aid and scho- 
lastic awards, and transfer between colleges on this campus. 

For the purpose of computing a grade point average for gradua- 
tion, only the grades received in those courses counting toward the 
degree, including grades in repeated courses, are included in the 
average. (See Grade-Point Requirements for the Bachelor's Degree 
section.) 

For the special method used to determine eligibility for transfer 
into the University, refer to the transfer admission policy in the 
Admission of Transfer Applicants section. 

OTHER SYMBOLS IN USE (NOT INCLUDED IN THE 
COMPUTATION OF AVERAGES) 

W — Approved withdrawal without credit. 

EX — Temporarily excused. Approved extension of time to complete 
the final examination or other requirements of the course. 
Applies to both undergraduate and graduate students. Entitles 
the student to an examination later without fee, or additional 
time to complete other requirements of the course. (Only the 
dean of the student's college may authorize such an extension 
of time in an individual case. A grade of EX that is not removed 
by the end of the first eight weeks of instruction in the next 
semester in which the student is enrolled in an undergraduate 
college on the Urbana-Champaign campus automatically be- 
comes a grade of F. If the student receiving an excused grade 
does not reenroll on the Urbana-Champaign campus, the ex- 
cused grade, if not removed, becomes an F after one calendar 
year.) 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



CR — Credit earned. To be used only in courses taken under the 
credit-no credit grading option. (Instructors report the usual 
letter grades. Grades of A+ through C- will automatically be 
converted to CR.) 
NC — No credit earned. To be used only in courses taken under the 
credit-no credit grading option. (Instructors report the usual 
letter grades. Grades of D+ through F, and Ab will automati- 
cally be converted to NC.) 
IP — Course in progress. 

Miss — Missing grade. Instructor has failed to submit a grade for the 
student. 
DF — Grade temporarily deferred. To be used only in those thesis, 
research, and special problems courses extending over more 
than one semester that are taken by graduate students as 
preparation for the thesis and by undergraduate students in 
satisfaction of the requirements for graduation with honors, 
and in other approved courses that extend over more than one 
semester. (Requests for use of the DF grade in courses that 
extend over more than one semester, and therefore require 
postponement of the final grade report, must be submitted in 
writing by the executive officer of the department offering the 
courses to the dean of the appropriate college for concurrence. 
A current list of courses that have received such approval is 
maintained in the Office of Admissions and Records.) 
S — Satisfactory, and 

U — Unsatisfactory. To be used only as final grades in graduate 
thesis research courses, in graduate and undergraduate courses 
given for zero credit, and in other courses that have been 
specifically approved by the head or the chairperson of the 
department concerned, with concurrence of the appropriate 
college dean. A current list of courses that have received such 
approval is maintained in the Office of Admissions and Records. 

Pass — Used for all test-based credit. A minimum grade of C- is 
required. 

CREDIT-NO CREDIT GRADING OPTION 

The credit-no credit grading option is designed to encourage students 
to explore areas of academic interest that they might otherwise avoid 
for fear of poor grades. All students considering this option are 
cautioned that many graduate and professional schools consider 
applicants whose transcripts bear a significant number of nongrade 
symbols less favorably than those whose transcripts contain none or 
very few. Likewise, in computing a preadmission grade point aver- 
age, some of these schools may convert the NC symbol into a failing 
grade since they do not know whether the actual grade was a D, F, or 
Ab. 

A full-time undergraduate student not on probation may, with the 
approval of his or her adviser, take a maximum of two courses each 
semester under the credit-no credit grading option. Part-time stu- 
dents may take one course each semester under this option. Summer 
term 1 and 2 students may take one course under the credit-no credit 
option. 

A maximum of 18 semester hours earned under the credit-no 
credit grading option may be applied toward a baccalaureate degree 
at the Urbana-Champaign campus of the University. A correspon- 
dence course taken on a credit-no credit basis will be included in the 
18-semester-hour credit-no credit limit. 

Any lower- or upper-division course may be chosen under the 
credit-no credit option except courses used to satisfy the University's 
general education requirements, courses designated by name or area 
by the major department for satisfying the major, and those specifi- 
cally required by name by the college for graduation. In cases of 
subsequent change of major, courses previously taken under the 
credit-no credit option in the new field may qualify for meeting major 
requirements. 

For a course taken in residence, undergraduate students must 
exercise the credit-no credit option within the first eight weeks of 
instruction in a semester, during the first four weeks of an eight-week 
course taught in .. f.ill OJ Spring semester, during the first two weeks 
of instru. tioninthe four-week summer term, or during the first four 
weeks of instrui lion in the eighl week term. Students may elect to

summer term. The credit-no credit option form must be properly 
approved and deposited in the college office. 

Instructors are not informed of those students in their classes who 
are taking work under the credit-no credit option, and they report the 
usual letter grades at the end of the course. These grades are automati- 
cally converted to CR or NC. Grades of C- or better are required in 
order to earn credit. Credit-no credit courses are not counted toward 
the grade point average but are included as part of the total credit 
hours. Final grades of CR or NC (for credit or no credit) are recorded 
on the student's permanent academic record and subsequently will 
not be changed to letter grades. 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Classification of an undergraduate student is made by the Office of 
Admissions and Records based upon the number of credit hours 
earned, which includes credit earned by examination or accepted for 
transfer by the University whether or not such credit is applicable to 
a student's degree program. Classification for registration, certifica- 
tion, and assessment purposes is based on the following scale. 



Freshman standing 
Sophomore standing 
Junior standing 
Senior standing 



0-29.9 hours 
30-59.9 hours 
60-89.9 hours 
90 or more hours 



TRANSCRIPTS OF ACADEMIC RECORDS 

Former and currently enrolled students who have paid their Univer- 
sity charges are entitled to receive, upon written request, transcripts 
of their academic records. Upon graduation or withdrawal from the 
University, any student with an outstanding loan is not issued a 
transcript until he or she has completed an exit interview with the 
Office of Student Accounts and Cashiering. Each transcript includes 
a student's entire academic record to date and current academic 
status. Partial transcripts are not issued. 

The charge for an official transcript is $5 per copy. The charge for 
a written certification of enrollment or d degree verification is $4 per 
copy. The charge for additional copies ordered at the same time and sent 
to the same address or picked up is $2 per copy- 

A student who submits an application for direct transfer admis- 
sion to the University of Illinois at Chicago or to the University of 
Illinois at Springfield through the Urbana admissions office will have 
a transcript included with it at no charge; see the inside back cover for 
address information. 

Telephone requests for transcripts cannot be honored. Transcripts 
are released only by written request to whomever a student or former 
student designates. A written request accompanied by a check or 
money order made payable to the University of Illinois should be sent 
to the Office of Admissions and Records (see the inside back cover for 
address information). A credit card number and expiration date (Visa, 
MasterCard, or Discover) may also be submitted for payment. 

STUDENT RECORDS POLICY 

It is University policy to comply fully with the Family Educational 
Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 as amended. Guidelines and regula- 
tions for discharge of the University's obligation under this act are 
contained in the Code of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students, 
available to students on the World Wide Web (http://www.oar. 
uiuc.edu/records/FERPA.html) and at 901 West Illinois Street. 
Under these guidelines: 

— Certain student records may be released only with the prior 
consent of the student. 

- Certain student records can he released with or without the 
student's consent. 

— Under certain conditions, parents may be granted access to a 
student's record with or without the student's consent. 

— A student has the right to inspect his or her educational record. 

— Procedures exist for students to challenge the contents of their 
educational records. 

The University may release without the student's consent infor- 
mation that appears in student directories and publications that are 
available to the public, except when a currently enrolled student 
requests that the University suppress this information. 

A student has the right In file a complaint with the U.S. Department

ance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 600 Independence Av- 
enue. S\\ . Washington, DC 20202-4605. 

A currently enrolled student may elect to suppress either personal 
information or academic information or both categories of directory 
information. To be effective for a term, a request form must be 
submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records (901 West Illinois 
Street) by the end of the fifth class day of the term. The University will 
continue to suppress this information until the student withdraws the 
request. 

For former students, directory information includes the student's 
name; date of birth; last known addresses and telephone numbers; 
college, curriculum, and major field of study; dates of attendance and 
full- or part-time status; class level; honors; certificates or degrees 
earned at the University and the date(s) conferred; weight and height 
for athletic team members; participation in officially recognized ac- 
tivities and sports; and institutions previously attended. 

FALSIFICATION OF DOCUMENTS 

Any student who, for purposes of fraud or misrepresentation, falsi- 
fies, forges, defaces, alters, or mutilates in any manner any official 
University document or representation thereof may be subject to 
discipline. Some examples of official documents are identification 
cards, receipts, transcripts of credits, library documents, and petitions 
for change in residence status. Any student who uses computing 
facilities to interfere with computing systems or who uses another 
identification to gain access to computing systems may be subject to 
discipline. 

Any applicant who knowingly withholds information or gives 
false information on an application for admission or readmission may 
become ineligible for admission to the University or may be subject to 
discipline. 

Any student who knowingly withholds information or gives false 
information in any document or materials submitted to any member 
or agent of the University may be subject to discipline. 

PLACEMENT DECISIONS 

Many programs on the campus include a service or practical training 
component involving placement in a field training program, intern- 
ship, or other outreach function. These placements are beneficial to the 
University and to the students. The decision on a particular student's 
suitability for placement, however, is a matter of discretion exercised 
by the administrator of the placing program. The University reserves 
the right to make such decisions on placement. 

Each department/program administrator has authority and dis- 
cretion to place students in field /training programs as part of aca- 
demic programs. If a student believes a request for placement has been 
inappropriately or arbitrarily denied, the student may appeal the 
decision by the administrator responsible to the dean/director for that 
academic program. Unless an alternative grievance procedure ap- 
plies, the dean's decision on placement shall be final. 

IDENTIFICATION CARDS 

Each new student is issued a permanent photo identification card, 
which must be retained by the student while registered at the Univer- 
sity. The ID card remains the property of the University, and any 
student who alters or intentionally mutilates a University ID, who 
uses the ID of another, or who allows his or her own ID card to be used 
by another may be subject to discipline. 

A charge of $20 (amount subject to change) is assessed for replac- 
ing each lost, mutilated, confiscated, or stolen photo ID card. Ques- 
tions regarding the issuance of ID cards may be directed to the 
Campus ID Center, 244-0135. 

STUDENTS IN DEBT TO THE UNIVERSITY 

Students will be assessed $15 (amount subject to change) for each 
check they present to the University that is returned for insufficient 
funds or other reasons. Additional penalties, including dismissal 
from the University, may be imposed on students who continually 



permit their University accounts to become delinquent or who issue 
checks that are returned to the University unpaid. 

Students who are in debt to the University at the end of any 
academic term may not be permitted to register again. They are not 
entitled to receive diplomas, of ficial statements, or transcripts of credit 
until the indebtedness has been paid or suitable arrangements for 
payment have been made, unless there are pending bankruptcy 
petitions of the students seeking a discharge of all such indebtedness 
or all such indebtedness has been discharged. 

PARKING REGULATIONS 

All students, their spouses, and dependent children with valid vehicle 
operator permits to operate automobiles, motorcycles, motor scoot- 
ers, and bicycles in Illinois may operate them on the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus, provided they comply with University and state 
regulations. Public parking facilities are extremely limited near the 
campus. A permit to park or store a car in University rental lots 
requires payment of an annual fee. Bus service to the University is 
provided by the C-U MTD. For route, schedule, and fare information, 
call MTD at 384-8188. Information about the operation of motor 
vehicles and bicycles is available from the Division of Campus Park- 
ing and Transportation, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,

Graduation Requirements 



GRADE-POINT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR'S 
DEGREE 

All candidates for a degree must have at least a 2.0 (A = 4.0) grade point 
average on all University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign credits 
counted for graduation requirements and at least a 2.0 grade point 
average on the combined transfer and University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign credits counted for graduation requirements. Certain 
colleges have established higher scholastic graduation requirements 
for specific curricula. (Grades in courses taken at the other campus of 
the University are counted as transferred.) 

When a course has been repeated, both the original and subse- 
quent grades are included in the average if the course is acceptable 
toward graduation, but the credit is counted only once. An original 
grade is not removed from the student's record for a course subse- 
quently passed by special examination. 

Students who do not meet the requirements stated above may 
graduate if they have the minimum grade point average calculated by 
either of the following alternative methods: 

— Courses in which grades of D or F have been recorded are excluded, 
not to exceed a total of 10 semester hours completed prior to the last 
30 hours of work completed at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign and counted for graduation requirements, or 
— A grade point average of no less than 2.1 is calculated for the last 60 
semester hours of work counted for graduation requirements and 
completed at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, except 
in those curricula for which a higher scholastic graduation require- 
ment is specified. 

Each college office, on request, will inform students regarding the 
scholarship regulations of that college. 

RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION 



FIRST BACHELOR'S DEGREE 

In addition to meeting specific course and scholastic requirements, 
each candidate for a bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign must spend either the first three years earning 
not fewer than 90 semester hours or the last year (two semesters or the 
equivalent) earning not fewer than 30 semester hours in residence at 
the Urbana-Champaign campus, uninterrupted by any work in an- 
other institution. Only those courses that are applicable toward the 
degree sought may be counted in satisfying the above minimum 
requirements. (Either three twelve-week terms or four eight-week 
sessions are the equivalent of two semesters). 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



Concurrent attendance at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign and another collegiate institution does not interrupt the 
residence requirement for graduation. 

Credit earned through the Advanced Placement Program is in- 
cluded in the first 90 semester hours and is not considered as interrupt- 
ing residence. 

Credit allowed toward graduation for completion of courses of 
study offered by the religious foundations located in Urbana-Cham- 
paign is not counted as interrupting residence or counted toward 
satisfying rmnimum residence requirements for graduation. 

Attendance at another institution under the Committee on Institu- 
tional Cooperation Program or participation in the University of 
Illinois foreign study programs or the Study Away from Campus 
Programs for which students are registered in Urbana-Champaign 
courses does not interrupt residence, and credits earned through these 
programs are counted as residence credit toward graduation, pro- 
vided that within the last two years of study at least 30 semester hours 
have been earned in courses taken on the Urbana-Champaign cam- 
pus. 

Transfer students from community colleges must, after attaining 
junior standing, earn at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Cham- 
paign or any other approved four-year institution at least 60 semester 
hours acceptable toward their degrees, in addition to meeting the 
usual residence requirement for degrees from the University of Illi- 
nois at Urbana-Champaign. 

Students transferring from the University of Illinois at Chicago or 
from the University of Illinois at Springfield to the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus as candidates for degrees must satisfy the residence and 
academic requirements for graduation established for the curriculum 
entered on the Urbana-Champaign campus. Since the campuses do 
not have identical academic programs, a student who is contemplat- 
ing a transfer should consult with the college into which he or she 
expects to transfer. 

A student attending as "visitor only" is not considered a "student 
in residence." 

A student who requests that the residence requirement for gradu- 
ation be waived must submit a petition to the dean of his or her college, 
who will take action on the petition. 

A student on drop status may not graduate until he or she has been 
reinstated by the dean of the student's college. A student who meets 
the conditions stated in the first paragraph of this section must notify 
the dean of his or her college of the student's intent to apply credit 
earned elsewhere toward the degree requirements and arrange to 
have a final official transcript from the other collegiate institution(s) 
attended sent to the Office of Admissions and Records. 

SECOND BACHELOR'S DEGREE 

A student who has received one bachelor's degree may, with college 
approval, be permitted to receive a second bachelor's degree from the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, provided that all speci- 
fied requirements for both degrees are fully met and that the curricu- 
lum offered for the second degree includes at least the final 30 
semester hours that are earned in residence at the Urbana-Champaign 
campus and not counted for the other degree. 

The second bachelor's degree may be earned either concurrently 
with or subsequent to the first degree. 

A candidate for a second bachelor's degree must meet the same 
residence requirements as for the first degree. 

Only those courses that are acceptable toward the degree sought 
may be counted in satisfying the above minimum requirements. This 
includes the 30 additional hours required for the second degree. 

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS

Students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the 
College of Commerce and Business Administration should consult 
the college section for more information. 

RELIGIOUS FOUNDATION COURSES 

Courses of study offered by the religious foundations located in 
Urbana-Champaign that have been approved by the College of Lib- 
eral Arts and Sciences Committee on Courses and Curricula are 
accepted for credit by the University provided that the student is 
currently registered in University courses. Registration in these courses 
is limited to students of sophomore standing or above who are 
currently registered on campus in University courses and must be 
approved in advance by the dean of the student's college. Grades in 
these courses are not included in the student's all-University scholas- 
tic average and the courses are not counted as interrupting residence 
or toward satisfying minimum residence requirements for gradua- 
tion. 

A maximum of 10 semester hours of credit in religious foundation 
courses may, with the approval of the dean of the college concerned, 
be counted toward graduation. The College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences has different restrictions which are given in detail in the LAS 
Student Handbook. 

The above credit limitations and other restrictions apply to reli- 
gious foundation courses only and not to courses offered by the 
University of Illinois Program in Religious Studies. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTRAMURAL COURSES 

After matriculation, a student may count toward his or her degree, 
with the approval of the dean of the student's college, as many as 60 
semester hours of credit earned in extramural and /or correspondence 
study, provided that: 

— The student completes all of the remaining requirements for the 
degree in residence at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 
or 

— The student presents acceptable residence credit for work done 
elsewhere and completes requirements needed for his or her degree in 
residence at the University. In all cases, the senior year (two semesters 
of not less than 30 semester hours) must be done in residence at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

A student who has completed the first three years in residence at 
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, earning a minimum 
of 90 semester hours, may do all or part of the senior year in correspon- 
dence or extramural study, subject to meeting all of the requirements 
for the degree. 

Credit for correspondence work taken with fully accredited insti- 
tutions may be allowed, but only on approval of the dean of the 
student's college. 



THESES 



If a thesis is to be submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements 
for a bachelor's degree, the subject must be announced by the end of 
the sixth week of instruction in the first semester of the student's 
senior year. The work must be done under the direction of a professor 
in the department concerned and must be applicable to the curriculum 
in which a degree is expected. A maximum of 10 hours of credit in 
thesis work may be counted toward a bachelor's degree. 

UNDERGRADUATE CREDIT FOR SERVICE AND 
EDUCATION IN THE ARMED FORCES 

The University grants registered students college credit for certain 
training and experience in the armed forces of the United States. A 
student who completes military service in the U.S. Air Force, Army, 
Marine Corps, Navy, or Coast Guard, including basic or recruit 
training of six months or more, is awarded 4 semester hours of credit 
in basic military science upon presentation of evidence on Form DD- 
214 of honorable discharge or transfer to the reserve component. 

Correspondence courses for which the student has passed the end- 
of-course examination prepared by the U.S. Armed Forces Institute, 
that are baccalaureate-oriented, and that correspond in level and 
content to courses offered at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign are recognized for credit. 

Credit recommendations in the Guide to the Evaluation of Education 
Experiences in the Armed Forces (published by the American Council on 
Education) for military service school training will be considered for 
transfer credit as follows: (1) credit will be granted for college-level, 
baccalaureate-oriented training and education, (2) vocational credit 
related to the student's curriculum choice will be referred for consid- 
eration to the dean of the college in which the student is enrolled, and 
(3) duplicate credit will be deleted. Applicability of military credit 
toward a particular degree is determined by the dean of the college. 
Additional information may be obtained from the Office of Admis- 
sions and Records. 

Graduation with Honors 

Recognition for superior academic achievement is given by the Uni- 
versity and by the colleges and departments. 

UNIVERSITY HONORS 

Continuous academic achievement is recognized by inscribing the 
student's name on a Bronze Tablet that hangs on a wall of the Main 
Library. To qualify, an undergraduate student must: 

— Have at least a 3.5 (A = 4.0) cumulative grade point average for all 
work taken at the University through the academic term prior to 
graduation, and 

— Rank, on the basis of his or her cumulative grade point average 
(including University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and transfer 
work, if any) through the academic term prior to graduation, in the top 
3 percent of the students in his or her college graduating class. 

Transfer students, in addition to meeting the general rules for 
qualification, must satisfy two additional requirements: they must 
have cumulative University of Illinois at LJrbana-Champaign grade 
point averages as high as the lowest ones listed for students in their 
colleges who qualify on the basis of having completed all of their work 
at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; and they must earn 
40 or more semester hours at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign through the academic term prior to graduation. 

For the purpose of this award, college graduating class means all 
students receiving bachelor's degrees from the same University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign college between July 1 of each year and 
June 30 of the next. 

For the purpose of this award, academic term prior to graduation 
means: for August graduates, the preceding spring semester; for 
October graduates, the preceding spring semester; for January gradu- 
ates, the preceding summer session; for May graduates, the preceding 
fall semester. The list will be determined each year after grades for the 
fall semester are available. To be considered in the calculation of 
University Honors, all grade corrections must be recorded by the end 
of the eighth week of the spring semester. 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



COLLEGE HONORS 



Each college prescribes the conditions under which degree candidates 
may be recommended for graduation with honors. These distinctions 
are noted on students' diplomas, permanent University records, and 
official transcripts of credits. Detailed information concerning the 
requirements for graduation with honors is included in the sections of 
this catalog applying to the individual colleges and departments. 

PHI KAPPA PHI 

The national honor society of Phi Kappa Phi recognizes and encour- 
ages superior scholarship in all academic disciplines. To be eligible, a 
junior (72 to 89 letter-graded hours) must have a minimum cumula- 
tive grade point average of 3.75 and a scholastic rank in the upper 5 
percent of the junior class; seniors (90 or more letter-graded hours) 
must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 and a 
scholastic rank in the upper 10 percent of the senior class. 

Invitations to membership are mailed to all eligible juniors and 
seniors, and an initiation program is held near the end of each 
semester. 

THE DEAN'S LIST 

The names of undergraduates who have achieved grade point aver- 
ages for a given semester in the top 20 percent of their college class will 
be included on a list prepared for the dean of the college. (In the 
College of Fine and Applied Arts, the names of eligible undergradu- 
ates who have achieved grade point averages for a given semester in 
the top 20 percent of all students in their curriculum will be listed.) This 
list is publicized within the University and is sent to news agencies 
throughout the state. Names of James Scholars are preceded by an 
ampersand (&). 

To be eligible for Dean's List recognition, students must complete 
successfully 14 academic semester hours, of which at least 12 must be 
taken for letter grade (A, B, C, D, E, AB). Only grades in hand at the 
time the list is compiled will be considered in determining eligibility 
unless it can be established that the final grade average will be above 
the minimum required regardless of the grade eventually received; 
students with EX, DF, or missing grades will be added as soon as letter 
grades are received and eligibility can be determined. Credits earned 
during the semester through proficiency, CLEP, and advanced place- 
ment examinations may not be counted toward the 14-semester-hour 
requirement. 

Individual colleges may modify the above criteria, and interested 
students should contact their college offices for further information. 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has different eligibility 
requirements, which are given in detail in the LAS Student Handbook.

ARMY ROTC 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign began as a land grant 
university in 1868. Military training was mandatory for all male 
undergraduates until the program became entirely voluntary in 1964. 
Parti, ipation in the Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) is 
open to all University students, regardless of their academic majors or

State, and National Guard scholarships. Additionally numerous merit 
based scholarships are available to enrolled cadets. 

LEADERSHIP TRAINING 

Students' receive hands-on training, and are developed through a 
formal Leadership Development Program (LDP). The LDP evaluates 
students' leadership potential in a variety of leadership roles and 
provides immediate feedback to students. Emphasis is on hands-on 
leadership experience. Cadets plan, organize, and evaluate much of 
the laboratory and field training. 

ADVENTURE TRAINING 

Training in mountaineering techniques (rappelling), land navigation, 
survival, rifle marksmanship, and waterborne operations is available 
to every student. Some students volunteer to attend the Army Air- 
borne school, Air Assault school (helicopter operations), and leader- 
ship training with active and reserve units. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE SCHOLARSHIPS 

Enrollment in Army ROTC can provide significant financial support 
to interested students. All ROTC scholarships are merit, not need 
based. Army ROTC offers three financial aid programs that provide 
support to Army ROTC cadets: the Army ROTC Federal Scholarship 
program, the Illinois State ROTC Scholarship program, and the Simul- 
taneous Membership Program of the Army ROTC and the National 
Guard or Army Reserve. 

Federal Scholarships. Competitively awarded scholarships available 
for college-bound high school juniors and seniors, college freshmen 
and college sophomores. These scholarships cover tuition, fees, books, 
and $200 tax-free monthly stipend for the duration of the scholarship. 
Illinois State ROTC Scholarships. Illinois State residents can com- 
pete for one of forty scholarships that provide full tuition waivers for 
ROTC students. To be eligible to compete student must meet resi- 
dency, medical, and academic standards and be enrolled in a military 
science course. 

Army National Guard and Reserves. The Simultaneous Membership 
Program (SMP) allows students to join the U.S.Army Reserve or 
Illinois Army National Guard (ILNG) and also to join Army ROTC. 
The program provides the student with a higher monthly paycheck, 
about $300/month (GI Bill), $200/month stipend from Army ROTC. 
Additional GI Bill benefits of $350/month are available to ILNG SMP 
juniors and seniors. 

Other Scholarships. ROTC awards numerous other cash award schol- 
arships from $250-$2000 annually. Engineering students who are 
enrolled in Army ROTC are eligible for other additional financial aid 
through named scholarships. These students should contact the ROTC 
office for further details. All Army ROTC cadets, as a minimum, 
receive $200 a month for their last two years in the program if they 
meet the requirements for continuing. 

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES 

ROTC training and instruction are designed to prepare students to 
serve as officers in the U.S. Army. This may be full time on active duty, 
or part time with the Army Reserve or National Guard. Service within 
the reserve forces allows pursuit of a civilian career while simulta- 
neously serving the country as an officer. Approximately half of Army 
ROTC graduates pursue civilian careers. Civilian sector employers 
actively recruit officers, having discovered that their ROTC leader- 
ship training is an invaluable tool for corporate success. 

PROGRAM OPTIONS 

1 . Four years — the student attends one military science course each 
semester. 

2. Three and one-half years— the student takes two military science 
courses during the first semester, then one course each semester 
thereafter. 

3. Three years — the student takes two military science courses per 
semester during the first year, then one course each semester thereaf- 
ter. 

4. Two years — those students with prior military experience (junior 
ROTC, prior military service) may receive credit for the first two years 
of Army ROTC and begin with the second two years. Alternatively, 
students who are interested in the program, but who were not in- 
volved in K< )T( 'during their first twoyearsofcollege,mayjoinduring 
these last two years by attending a five-week, all expenses paid camp 
during the summer, for which each student receives more than $800 
in pay.

ACADEMIC PROGRAM 

l'hc first-year and second-year educational program in military sci- 
ence consists of the courses Mil S 11 1. 113, 121, and 123. These 2-hour 
courses -ire designed to give students a basic understanding of the 
national defense establishment, the role of the U.S. Army officer, 
principles of military leadership, and military-related skills. 

The third and fourth years of military science, consisting of MIL S 
13 24 1 and 243, are designed to develop the skills and attitudes 
\ ital to assuming leadership positions. 

A leadership laboratory is required with each academic course. 
1 he leadership laboratory is 2.5 hours per week for the first year, 3.5 
hours per week in the second third year, and 4.5 hours per week 
during the third and fourth years. Practical experience is provided in 
military and leadership skills in a framework thatprovides maximum 
opportunity to develop each student's self-confidence, decisiveness, 
and leadership potential. 

To develop the student's academic diversity, each student must 
demonstrate proficiency or complete a course in math reasoning, 
computer literacy, human behavioral science, oral/written communi- 
cations, and military history, prior to being commissioned. These 
courses may be used to fulfill other academic degree requirements.

NAVAL ROTC 

The Naval ROTC program is a professional educational opportunity 
in which a student can earn a commission in the U.S. Navy or U.S. 
Marine Corps Reserve while pursuing a baccalaureate degree. This 
professional foundation is then developed and broadened during 
active service as a commissioned officer after grad ua Hon and commis- 
sioning. A student may be enrolled in either the Scholarship Program 
or the College Program (nonscholarship). There are four-year pro- 
grams for entering freshmen and two-year programs for students who 
have already completed part of their college education. 

For scholarship students, no military obligation is incurred until 
the beginning of the sophomore year. College program students incur 
the military obligation at the commencement of the junior year. Naval 
science courses are open to all students, upon consent of the Depart- 
ment of Naval Science, even if they are not enrolled in either of these 
programs. 



FOUR-YEAR NAVY/MARINE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM 

The Navy/Marine Scholarship Program provides the student with 
full tuition, fees, books, uniforms, and a subsistence allowance (cur- 
rently $200 per month) for as long as four years. A student in good 
standing and enrolled in a degree program that requires longer than 
four years for completion may apply for fifth-year scholarship ben- 
efits. Upon graduation, scholarship students are commissioned in the 
U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and serve a minimum of four 
years on active d uty depending upon warfare field they have selected. 

Scholarship selection in national competition is based on the 
applicant's Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test- 
ing (ACT) Program score; high school and college records; aptitude 
for naval service, as judged by interviews; and by prescribed physical 
qualifications. 

Scholarship students have an opportunity during the summer to 
practice what they have learned in the classroom. Three summer 
training periods of approximately four to six weeks each are taken by 
students either at sea aboard a U.S. Navy vessel, at an aviation 
squadron, amphibious base, or on board a nuclear submarine. Stu- 
dents who choose to enter the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve spend their 
last summer training period at the Marine Corps Officer Candidate 
School in Quantico, Virginia. 

FOUR-YEAR NAVY/MARINE COLLEGE PROGRAM 

A Navy /Marine College Program student receives all required uni- 
forms and naval science textbooks while enrolled and a subsistence 
allowance (currently $200 per month) during the junior and senior 
years. Upon graduation, the college program student is commis- 
sioned in the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and serves a 
minimum of three of the eight years of reserve obligation on active 
duty, depending upon the warfare field they have selected. 

A student may apply for admission to the college program through 
the Professor of Naval Science, who makes the final selection. This 
selection is based on academic, physical, and military aptitude crite- 
ria. College program students also attend one summer-at-sea training 
session, usually after the junior year. 

College program students are eligible to be selected for the schol- 
arship program through recommendation of the Professor of Naval 
Science; the decision is made by the Chief of Naval Education and 
Training (CNET). These students are also eligible to receive Illinois 
State ROTC scholarships (if residents of this state). These scholarships 
are awarded annually on a competitive basis and cover tuition only. 

TWO-YEAR COLLEGE PROGRAM 

This program provides a student with all required uniforms, naval 
science textbooks, and subsistence allowance (currently $200 per 
month). Applicants should have two remaining years of study at the 
Urbana-Champaign campus. During the summer before the junior 
year, students attend a six-week course of military instruction at the 
Naval Science Institute at Newport, Rhode Island. Transportation 
costs and salaries are paid to the students. After successful completion 
of the course, they join their contemporaries in the college program 
and also may be eligible for appointment to scholarship status, de- 
pending on their backgrounds and academic performances. College 
program students participate in a four- to six-week summer-at-sea 
training period between their junior and senior years, as do their 
scholarship counterparts. Applications must be complete and reach 
CNET by 15 March of the sophomore year. Interviewing begins in 
January of the sophomore year. 

TWO-YEAR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM 

Acceptance into the Naval ROTC Two- Year Scholarship Program 
training option guarantees a student a two-year Naval ROTC scholar- 
ship. Summer training and other benefits, as well as Naval ROTC 
training during the junior and senior years, are the same as those for 
the two-year college program. Prerequisites for this option include at 
least one year of calculus, with a C average or better. A minimum 
grade point average of 2.5/4.0 is required, with a preferred major of 
mathematics, chemistry, physics, or engineering. Applications must 
be complete and reach CNET by 15 March of the sophomore year, 
interviewing begins in January of the sophomore year. 

NURSE OPTION 

The Nurse Option Scholarship Program provides the student the 
same benefits as four-year scholarship students. Upon graduation, 
students are commissioned in the U.S. Navy Nurse Corps. Nurse 
option students have two specialized four-week summer training 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY 



periods at a major naval hospital and at sea. Only the freshman and 
senior naval science and English composition class requirements are 
mandatory. Graduates must pass their licensing exam within one 
year.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION 

Further information regarding Naval ROTC may be obtained in 
person from or by writing to the Professor of Naval Science, Univer- 
sity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 236 Armory, 505 East Armorv

AIR FORCE ROTC 

The Air Force Reserve Officers' Training Corps at the University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is an elective program that provides 
professional military training for participating students. The program 
is a consecutive series of elective courses, leadership laboratories, and 
field training experiences designed to prepare young men and women 
for leadership positions as commissioned officers in the U.S. Air Force. 
The curriculum, however, is applicable to success in any field. 

For qualified applicants, Air Force ROTC offers two-, three-, and 
four-year programs leading to a commission as an Air Force officer. 
Three- and four-year program students complete the general military 
course, field training, and the professional officer course. Two-year 
program students complete an extended field training encampment 
and the professional officer course. Financial support is available 
through state tuition waivers and federal scholarships. 

Aerospace studies courses are open to all registered students, 
upon consent of the Department of Aerospace Studies, even if they are 
not enrolled in any of these programs and do not wish to pursue a 
commission. 

GENERAL MILITARY COURSE 

The educational program for the first two years in Air Force Aerospace 
Studies consists of AFAS 111, 112, 121, and 122. These 1-hour courses 
are designed to give students basic information on air power history 
and the role of the U.S. Air Force in the defense of the free world. All 
required aerospace studies textbooks and necessary uniforms are 
provided free. The general military course is open to all registered 
students at the University of Illinois without advance application and 
does not obligate students to the Air Force in any way. 

FIELD TRAINING 

Air Force ROTC field training is offered during the summer months 
at selected Air Force bases throughout the United States. Students in 
the four-year program participate in four weeks of field training, 
usually between their sophomore and junior years. Students applying 
for entry into the two-year program must successfully complete five 
weeks of field training prior to enrollment in the professional officer 
course. The Air Force pays all expenses associated with field training. 
The major areas of study in the four-week field training program 
include junior officer training, aircraft and air crew orientation, career 
orientation, survival training, base functions, Air Force environment, 
and physical training. The major areas of study included in the five- 
week field training program are essentially the same as those con- 
ducted at four-week field training plus the general military course and 
leadership laboratories. 

PROFESSIONAL OFFICER COURSE 

The third and fourth years of Air Force aerospace studies instruction, 
consisting of AFAS 231, 232, 241, and 242, are designed to develop 
skills and attitudes vital to the professional officer. Students complet- 
ing the professional officer course are commissioned as officers in the 
U.S. Air Force upon college graduation. All students in the course 
receive a nontaxable subsistence allowance of $200 per month. Stu- 
dents wanting to enter the program should apply early in the spring 
semester of their sophomore year in order to begin this course the 
following fall semester. Final selection of students rests with the 
Professor of Aerospace Studies. Each member of the course must: 

— Be a citizen of the United States. 

— Be a full-time student at the University 



COUNCIL ON TEACHER EDUCATION 



— Have at least two years remaining at the University as an under- 
graduate and/or graduate student upon entry to the program. 
Pass an Air Force physical examination. 

— Be able to complete all requirements for commissioning before 
reaching age 26. 

— Complete four- or five-week summer field training. 

— Achieve a qualifying score on the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test. 

— Execute a written agreement with the U.S. government to complete 
the course, accept a reserve commission in the U.S. Air Force upon 
graduation, and serve four years on active duty after graduation. 
Pilot candidates agree to serve ten years and navigators six years on 
active duty, after completion of training. 

— Enlist in the Air Force Obligated Reserve Section; this enlistment is 
terminated upon acceptance of a commission. 

— Possess and maintain a quality grade point average meeting the 
requirements of the student's college. 

— Not be a conscientious objector, nor possess other disqualifying 
characteristics to a commission as established by law or the De- 
partment of Defense. Talk with the AFROTC recruiter to see if you 
qualify. 

LEADERSHIP LABORATORY 

The Air Force requires all qualified officer candidates pursuing a 
commission to participate in a leadership laboratory. The leadership 
laboratory is not a University course and no University credit is 
awarded for participation. 

Instruction is conducted within the framework of an organized 
cadet corps with a progression of experiences designed to develop 
each student's leadership potential. The leadership laboratory in- 
volves the study of Air Force customs and courtesies, drill and 
ceremonies, career opportunities, and the life and work of an Air Force 
junior officer. Students develop leadership in a practical, supervised 
laboratory, which typically includes field trips to Air Force installa- 
tions throughout the United States. This laboratory is restricted to 
individuals enrolled in the precommissioning programs only.

The Council on Teacher Education formulates, modifies, implements, 
and monitors compliance with policies related to the education of 
educators. The Council also facilitates communication and promotes 
collaboration among all participants involved in the preparation and 
continuing professional development of educators. It is responsible 
for the coordination of teacher education curricula at the Urbana- 
Champaign campus and serves as the liaison between the campus and 
state certification authorities. 

Six colleges of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
offer degree programs in teacher education: the Colleges of Agricul- 
tural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences; Applied Life Studies; 
Education; Fine and Applied Arts; Liberal Arts and Sciences; and the 
Graduate College. The program for the certification of school social 
workers is offered by the School of Social Work. The list of teacher 
education curricula can be found at the end of this section. 

Students may consult their teacher education advisers or the 
certification officer for additional information about academic regula- 
tions and other policies affecting teacher education. Consult the 
Executive Director of the Council for information about the Grievance 
Policy and Procedures for Students Enrolled in Certification Programs 
under the Purview of the Council on Teacher Education. 



Requirements 



ADMISSIONS 

Applicants to teacher education curricula must meet the admission 
requirements of the colleges and departments offering the chosen 
curricula. A student whose cumulative grade point average is less 
than the stated minimum may apply for admission and will be 
considered individually on a petition basis if enrollment vacancies 
exist in the college and curriculum to which the student seeks admis- 
sion. If admitted, the student may be placed on provisional status by 
the Council on Teacher Education for failure to maintain the requisite 
GPA. To be in compliance with recent state legislation, all students 
entering teacher education programs must also demonstrate basic 
proficiency in reading, mathematics, and language arts. 

Applicants are advised that certain felony convictions, enumer- 
ated in Articles 10-21.9 and 21-23aof the School Code of Illinois, prohibit 
certification or employment in public schools. Questions pertaining to 
this matter should be addressed to the certification officer. 

CONTINUATION IN TEACHER EDUCATION 

To be eligible for continuation in teacher education, candidates must 
have University of Illinois and cumulative grade point averages of 2.5 
(A = 4.0) or higher. In addition, candidates must meet grade-point 
requirements specific to their programs. The Council on Teacher 
Education reviews each student's academic progress every semester. 
Students who do not meet the grade point average criteria will receive 
warning letters from the Council advising them that their entry into 



PROGRAMS OF STUDY

student teaching and their receiving recommendations for certifica- 
tion from the University are at risk. Students will be directed to their 
college deans for more information. 

In addition, faculty committees screen students' files before and 
after student teaching to assess the overall record of their performance 
in the program. Teaching effectiveness is influenced not only by 
academic proficiency, but also by the personal characteristics of the 
teacher. Therefore, faculty members take these characteristics into 
account as they evaluate students' progress in the program. Teaching 
effectiveness can also be influenced by the teacher's health. For this 
reason, the University provides counseling and medical services for 
all students. A student wishing additional information about these 
services may call or visit the council office. 

Because it is essential that counseling and medical services be 
offered as soon as the need becomes apparent, teacher education 
advisers and faculty members are asked to recommend for assistance 
or examination any student about whom they feel concern. A student 
who is recommended for assistance or examination will receive a 
written request to make an appointment to discuss the situation. It is 
a requirement of the Council on Teacher Education that a student who 
receives such a request must respond. Failure to do so will jeopardize 
the student's continuation in teacher education. During the appoint- 
ment, the student will be informed of the counseling and medical 
services available at the University. The student's use of these services 
is usually optional. In exceptional cases, however, the Council may 
require a student to satisfactorily complete a mental health or physical 
examination with one of the campus services. Students who wish to 
continue in teacher education must comply with such referrals. 

STUDENT TEACHING 

Undergraduate students should apply for student teaching place- 
ment assignments upon completing 55 semester hours of credit. 
Graduate students should consult with their adviser about the timing 
of requests for placement. Student teaching application forms are 
available in the college student teaching office that houses each 
program. (Students may obtain referrals to the appropriate office by 
contacting the council's district liaison.) A student seeking placement 
in student teaching should contact the appropriate college office of 
student teaching no later than the October 1 of the academic year 
preceding the desired placement to determine departmental dead- 
lines and meeting dates. Although departments may set earlier dead- 
lines, the latest date for application will be the last day of classes for the 
fall semester. Students who apply after their departments' deadlines 
cannot be guaranteed a student teaching assignment during the next 
academic year. A student who will not be on campus during the fall 
semester, but who expects to enroll in educational practice (student 
teaching) during the next school year, should secure an application 
form from his or her college's office of student teaching before leaving 
campus. 

On completion of 75 or more semester hours, a student who has 
submitted an application will receive a student teaching assignment 
pending verification that he or she (1) has completed all professional 
education course work and 100 hours of early field experience, (2) has 
University of Illinois and cumulative grade point averages of 2.5 (A = 
4.0) or higher, (3) has the minimum grade point average required for 
his or her program, (4) has received a recommendation for placement 
in student teaching from the appropriate faculty committee, and (5) 
has satisfactorily completed a criminal background check. 

Only those students officially registered in teacher education 
curricula are eligible for student teaching placements. Students who 
are on academic or disciplinary probation will not be permitted to 
student teach. Graduate students pursuing teacher certification through 
completion of undergraduate program requirements are required to 
petition the Council for permission to student teach. The Council 
reserves the right to deny student teaching placement to students 
whose performance in course work or in early field experiences has 
been judged to be unsatisfactory by professional standards, including 
- holarship, ethics, and responsibility, as determined by the faculty 
and staff in 1 1 insult, ition with cooperating school personnel. Satisfac- 
tory performance is not based solely on grades. Students may also be 
denied a student teaching placement for health reasons or for failure 
to satisfactorily complete a criminal background check. 

Students in teacher education should anticipate and plan lor 

student teaching assignment Pormosl students/ additional expense 

will be in* urred during the semester in whu h studenl teat hing is 

li ntsi annotbe guaranteed assignments in la alsi hools 



While attempts will be made to honor such requests, this is not always 
possible because the number of available sites is limited. 

Students are expected to complete all field experiences, including 
student teaching, at the University of Illinois. Under extenuating 
circumstances, a student who wishes to complete student teaching 
through another university, yet receive a University of Illinois degree 
and recommendation for certification, must secure the prior approval 
of his or her adviser, college, and theCouncil on Teacher Education via 
petition. The petition must be supported by verification from the other 
university that it will accept the student as a student teacher and will 
comply with all Council on Teacher Education requirements. Approv- 
als of such arrangements are infrequent, and students should expect 
to incur additional costs. Consult the Executive Director or Associate 
Director of the Council for additional information. 

Candidates for certification as administrators or school social 
workers should consult with their advisers regarding procedures for 
clinical placement. 

TEACHER CERTIFICATION 

A student who completes all of the course work and other require- 
ments in a program approved for purposes of certification by the 
Illinois State Board of Education is entitled to receive the recommen- 
dation of the University for the appropriate certificate, provided the 
candidate (1) is a U.S. citizen or legally present and authorized to 
work, is of good character and in good health, and is at least 19 years 
of age; (2) is recommended for certification by his or her program 
coordinator or department chairperson on the basis of criteria ap- 
proved by the Council; (3) has University of Illinois and cumulative 
grade point averages of 2.5 (A =4.0) or higher; and (4) has the 
minimum grade point average required in his or her program. 

In some instances a student may be denied a recommendation for 
certification but be granted a degree by his or her college. A student 
who believes that the recommendation for certification has been 
withheld unjustly may seek redress through the grievance policy 
established by the Council on Teacher Education. A copy of the policy 
and the allied procedures may be obtained from the Executive Direc- 
tor of the Council. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

Candidates for certification are required to complete course work that 
includes the theoretical and practical understanding generally ex- 
pected of a liberally educated person. General education includes 
developing knowledge related to the arts, communications, history, 
literature, mathematics, philosophy, sciences, and the social studies 
from multicultural and global perspectives. This requirement is satis- 
fied by the University of Illinois general education pattern incorpo- 
rated into all undergraduate teacher education programs. 

TEACHER CERTIFICATION TESTS 

All applicants for certification as teachers, school administrators, and 
school service personnel must pass tests mandated by the Illinois State 
Board of Education as a condition for certification. An applicant must 
pass a test in basic skills (reading, writing, grammar, and mathemat- 
ics) and a separate test in his or her major area. For further information, 
contact the certification officer or certification specialist. 

TIME LIMIT ON CERTIFICATION 

Because certification requirements are subject to change as a result of 
new mandates from the Illinois State Teacher Certification Board and 
the Illinois General Assembly, the University is unable to guarantee a 
recommendation for certification to anyone who applies for certifica- 
tion later than one year after graduation from an approved program. 
A student completing an approved program is urged to apply for 
certification during his or her last term on campus. Applications for 
certification are available in the council office. 

BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION OF APPLICANTS FOR FIELD 
PLACEMENT AND EMPLOYMENT 

Illinois school districts are required by state law to conduct criminal 
background investigations for applicants for certified and noncertified 
positions with a school district. Several school districts are requiring 
that applicants for field placements be subjected to a criminal back- 
ground review prior to placement in the school districts. 

All candidates for public school certification in programs under 
the purview of the Council on Teacher Education are required to 
submit toa criminal background checkby the HlinoisState Police prior 
to their initial field experience in the schools. 



COUNCIL ON TEACHER EDUCATION 



Candidates whose check results in a status oi "no record" maybe 
placed in the schools. 

t andidates whose check results in .1 status oi "pending" may be 
placed in Iheschools, unless their fingerprints are required tor further 
check by the Illinois State Police. 

\ candidate whose name check or fingerprint check results in 
confirmation of a criminal record will not be permitted in the schools 
unless his her case is acted on favorably by the campus Case Review 
Committee appointed by the Director of Admissions and Records. For 
purposes of an) such review, a member of the Council on Teacher 
Education or a designee will join the review. The recommendation of 
the Case Rev iew Committee will be communicated to the Director of 
\dmissions who will inform the Executive Director of the Council on 
Teacher Education of the recommendation. 

Final decisions regarding the placement of students in schools 
reside with the relevant department/college, with the exception of 
those students whose criminal histories prohibit them from attaining 
certification. The relevant department/college is responsible for se- 
curing placements for all students. The relevant program coordinator 
will consult with the school district before placing the candidate in 
that district. Candidates will be informed that if their background 
check includes evidence of a criminal history , the nature of that history 
might prohibit them from being placed in a given school district and 
that the district has the right to refuse any placement. Students with 
criminal histories that prohibit them from attaining public school 
certification may not be placed in any schools. In the event that no 
district will accept a student because of his/her criminal history, the 
relevant department / college is responsible for assisting the student in 
choosing an alternative course of study. 

The criminal background check will normally be conducted at the 
time that the candidate enters the program and will be valid as long as 
the candidate remains a continuous student. If, however, a candidate 
interrupts his/her program for one semester or longer, another crimi- 
nal background check will normally be required upon his/her reen- 
try 

This policy applies to all candidates who require field placements. 
Candidates are responsible for all fees connected with this procedure. 

Each applicant for employment in a school district in Illinois is 
required to authorize the employing school district to initiate a crimi- 
nal background check which may include a request for fingerprints. A 
school district may employ a person only after a background check has 
been initiated and may not knowingly employ a person who has been 
convicted of a felony or of attempting to commit certain offenses 
enumerated in The School Code of Illinois. This criminal background 
check is in addition to that required for field placements at the 
University of Illinois.

urban people through teaching, research, and outreach programs 
focused on human activity, food, fiber, and natural resource systems. 
The ACES College enrolls more than 2,000 students in the seven 
departments representing 13 majors leading to a bachelor of science 
diploma. Individual majors can select from many options that direct 
the focus of study to specific interests of students. Since its establish- 
ment, the ACES College has awarded over 25,000 baccalaureate 
degrees. It enjoys a rich history of scholarship, research, and outreach 
related to human interactions, natural resources, and environmental 
systems. 

Teaching, research, and outreach opportunities are supported by 
excellent resources. These include campus computer systems and the 
College of ACES Microcomputer Facility. A new College of ACES 
Library and Information Center will house the college Microcomputer 
Facility and the college collection of educational resources. This 
facility will also house the College of ACES career development and 
placement office which assists students in personal and career devel- 
opment through internships and work experiences, and placement 
after graduation. The Child Development Laboratory, the Edward R. 
Madigan Laboratory, and extensive research centers in Champaign- 
Urbana and across the state are other examples of unique and excellent 
college resources. This land-grant institution is physically located on 
some of the richest soils and enjoys some of the most favorable 
growing conditions in the world. A national historic landmark, the 
Morrow Plots are the oldest agronomic research plots in the U.S.; 
established in 1876, they are located on campus next to the under- 
graduate library. 

Programs such as the JBT Undergraduate Research Program offer 
excellent opportunities for students to be involved in cutting edge 
research and solving contemporary challenges. Research is conducted 
in the broad areas of consumer behavior, crop production, vegetable 
production, ornamental horticulture, forest production and protec- 
tion, food science, human nutrition, natural resource systems, envi- 
ronmental quality, marketing and utilization of agricultural products, 
individual and family well-being, and agroecology. 

Increasing the international knowledge and experience of stu- 
dents and faculty helps meet the growing demand for graduates who 
are internationally literate and able to work effectively in different 
countries, in different languages and with people of different cultures. 
The academic programs office provides focus to College international 
programs that are related to study abroad as well as integrating an 
international dimension to the educational experience. 

The distinguished faculty, innovative programs, and pioneering 
achievements in teaching, research, and outreach activities, together 
with an enthusiastic and competitive student body, place the College 
of ACES among the top institutions in the country in a survey of peers.

DUAL MAJOR IN AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING AND IN 
AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERING SCIENCES 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science and the Degree of 
Bachelor of Science in Agriculture in Agricultural Engineering- 
Agriculture Science 

This is a five-year program that results in a B.S. degree from the 
College of Engineering and a B.S. degree from the College of Agricul- 
tural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences. The 158 hour curricu- 
lum meets the requirements for both degrees. 

Agricultural engineering is the integration of biological and physi- 
cal sciences as a foundation for engineering applications in agricul- 
ture, food systems, natural resources, the environment, and related 
biological systems. Agricultural engineers are involved in the design 
of systems which include food and bioprocess engineering, off-road 
equipment, bioenvironmental engineering of plant and animal facili- 
ties, water quality and systems for the utilization and protection of soil 
and water resources. Important design constraints are economics, 
conservation of materials and energy, safety, and environmental 
quality. Graduates are employed by industry, consulting firms, and 
government for research, education, and manufacturing. By choice of 
electives, students may direct their program towards a specialization 
in off-road equipment engineering, soil and water resource engineer- 
ing, bioenvironmental engineering, or food and bioprocess engineer- 
ing. Individual programs are checked by departmental advisers to 
insure that national engineering accreditation (ABET) requirements 
are met.

MAJOR IN CROP SCIENCES 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Crop Sciences 

The major in crop sciences is designed for students with an interest in 
agronomic crop plants. There are six options under the crop sciences 
major. Students can study the diversity of crop plants — how they 
grow and are grown — in the crops option. In the plant protection 
option, students learn how to protect plants from the effects of 
diseases, insects, and weeds. The intersection between crop plants and 
their environment is emphasized in the agroecology option. Students 
in the crop agribusiness option learn about crop sciences and about 
agribusiness management. The plant biotechnology and molecular 
biology option is designed for students interested in molecular as- 
pects of crop plants and their interactions with other organisms. The 
biological sciences option provides a flexible framework of basic and 
applied science courses. In each of these options students receive a 
strong grounding in science which can lead to employment or, with 
suitable choice of electives, to graduate or professional study.

MAJOR IN HUMAN DEVELOPMENT AND FAMILY 
STUDIES 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Human Development 
and Family Studies 

The Human Development and Family Studies program prepares 
students for a variety of careers in human services, early childhood 
education, and public service, or for advanced study in individual and 
family development. Students can concentrate on their special inter- 
ests in human development, such as infancy, early childhood, or 
adolescence, or in family studies, such as the marital relationship, 
parent-child interaction, family change, or conflict and conflict man- 
agement in the family. Basic courses in these areas are linked to 
practical experiences in educational and community settings. Such 
experiences help graduating students to find placement in a graduate 
educational program or in employment in areas of greatest interest to 
them, such as child care services, family life education, human ser- 
vices, marriage and family counseling, pediatric services in hospitals, 
cooperative extension work, or business activities related to children 
and families. Students select one of two options within this major: 
Child and Adolescent Development or Family Studies. Issues related 
to cultural diversity and gender are emphasized in most courses.

COMMUNITY HEALTH 

Health care is among the most rapidly evolving industries in the 
United States today. People in all settings are concerned about main- 
taining access to effective health care and the costs of securing it. An 
aging population places greater demand upon health care providers. 
To address these issues, hospitals and clinics have reorganized, con- 
solidated, and introduced educational components designed to teach 
patients how to manage their personal health concerns. At the same 
time, business and industry leaders have invested millions of dollars 
in new health programs for their employees. Federal and state govern- 
ments are evaluating ways to make health care more effective and less 
costly. 

Recognized as one of the leaders in the United States with its strong 
emphasis on research and excellence in scholarship. The Department 
of Community Health prepares students for careers in the rapidly 
changing world of health and rehabilitative services. It is an exciting 
time in health care with emerging behavioral and environmental 
health concerns that challenge the field for new theories, policies, and 
technological innovations. The department's programs place special 
emphasis on the community context in which health care is delivered. 
Students can become involved in a variety of research projects related 
to issues such as bioethics, cancer epidemiology, disability studies, 
cultural aspects of health and disability, information technologies in 
health education, and health policy. 

The Department of Community Health offers students the oppor- 
tunity to focus their studies in either Health Planning and Administra- 
tion or Health Education. In addition to the core of community health 
courses, course work is completed in areas related to business, health 
behavior, marketing, and promotion. The degree is culminated with 
a fieldwork experience in setting appropriate to the area of concentra- 
tion. Graduates are equally prepared for jobs in progressive careers 
such as health education, policy, planning, and administration or for 
graduate study in areas such as medicine, nursing, and physical 
therapy. 

KINESIOLOGY 

The Department of Kinesiology is committed to the study and re- 
search of human movement in all its dimensions. Undergraduate 
study focuses on exercise stress, movement efficiency, and fitness; the 
social, cultural, and psychological aspects of participation in physical 
activity and sport; coordination, control and skill of physical activity; 
physical growth, development, and body form throughout the life 
span; the effects of therapeutic techniques of kinesiology upon recov- 
ery from physical injury; and the instructional process of teaching/ 
coaching of physical activity and sport. 

The curriculum combines a comprehensive liberal arts and sci- 
ences education with in-depth study in a particular area of interest. 
The program of study provides knowledge and understandings es- 
sential for human movement and sport careers in either public or 
private agencies. The hours required for graduation include pre- 
scribed courses for all students as well as requirements determined by 



COLLEGE OF APPLIED LIFE STUDIES 



the various areas oi emphasis by the student. Teaching and research 
emphasize hands-on learning through the use of modern laboratory 
equipment. Graduates find employment in fields such as teaching, 

corporate fitness, coaching, and athletic training. Many students 
continue their education and become physical therapists, physicians, 
exercise phj siologists, and sport psychologists. 

LEISURE STUDIES 

1 eisure Studies encompasses a wide range of disciplines — business 
administration, marketing, management, physiology, psychology, 
sociology, urban planning, and public policy analysis — as they relate 
to the impact of leisure seryices upon individual satisfaction and 
quality of life. In this dynamic field, researchers and practitioners alike 
seek answers to such questions as: What measurable values of leisure 
and recreational activities impact development throughout a person's 
life? How does the changing work force affect our leisure? What 
impact does the leisure industry have on the global economy? How 
cart a service industry best market itself? 

The leisure industry is one of the top three industries in almost 
every state and generates more than $300 billion nationwide. As one 
of the first leisure studies programs in the United States, the program 
at the University of Illinois continues to rank nationally among the top 
three in the field. The faculty is world-renowned for their research and 
scholastic endeavors in the areas of tourism, sports, recreation, and 
park and natural resource management. The Department of Leisure 
Studies has established and maintained the central position in the 
study of leisure, recreation, tourism and play over the past five 
decades. 

The curriculum in leisure studies prepares students to design, 
manage, and deliver leisure services to a variety of populations in 
diverse settings and provides a firm foundation from which students 
may pursue graduate studies. A broad general education is empha- 
sized and complemented with a core of professional courses. Beyond 
a strong core integrating management, leisure theory, and research, 
the program allows student to focus their studies on major market 
segment within the leisure and recreation field. Graduates pursue 
careers in variety of settings, including event management, amateur 
and professional sports industries, park districts, resorts, health clubs, 
and forest preserves. 

SPEECH AND HEARING SCIENCE 

Research has shown that communication is a key element in resolving 
the major problems of our society; improving communication for all 
people is an overall goal of study in speech and hearing science. In the 
Department of Speech and Hearing Science, students learn about 
human interpersonal communication. Through studies in speech- 
language pathology and audiology, they focus on the prevention, 
diagnosis, and treatment of hearing, speech, and language disorders 
in people of all ages. 

This major also equips students with strong oral and written 
communication skills and necessary tools to enter today's job market. 
Graduates hold positions in school systems, hospitals, medical prac- 
tices, and clinics. They also work in government agencies, research 
laboratories, and various businesses. A baccalaureate degree in speech 
and hearing science also prepares students to enter a graduate pro- 
gram in speech-language pathology or audiology or other areas 
including psychology, special education, business, medicine, and 
dentistry.

""Beginning freshmen will be at a disadvantage if they have not completed at least one 

year each of high school biology and high school chemistry. 

Once high school course work requirements are fulfilled, qualifica- 
tions for admission are primarily determined by a combination of 
class rank at the end of the junior year with the highest ACT or SAT test 
score on file at the time of the admission decision. These two factors are 
used to predict an applicant's likelihood of academic success and one 
may help to offset the other. For example, an applicant may compen- 
sate for a low test score with a high class rank. 

Transfer applicants must have attained junior standing (60 semes- 
ter hours of transferable credit) by the desired date of entry. Lower- 
division transfer students (less than 60 semester hours) must petition 
for admission. Admission is competitive, based upon cumulative 
grade point average. The minimum transfer GPA requirement for the 
college is 2.75 (A = 4.0).

CURRICULUM IN LEISURE STUDIES' 

The Department of Leisure Studies originated at the University of 
Illinois in 1940. Today, this program continues to rank nationally 
among the top three in the field, and takes pride in producing a large 
number of exceptional professionals in the field. The Department of 
Leisure Studies offers a bachelor of science degree with four areas of 
concentration: recreation management, park and natural resource 
management, sport management, and tourism management. The 
curriculum prepares students to design, manage, and deliver leisure 
services to a variety of populations in diverse settings and provides a 
firm foundation from which students may pursue graduate studies. A 
broad general education is emphasized and complemented with a 
core of professional courses. Beyond a strong core integrating man- 
agement, leisure theory, and research, the program allows students to 
focus on a major market segment within the leisure and recreation 
field by choosing an area of concentration. A total of 128 hours is 
needed for graduation for any student beginning their degree pro- 
gram on or after spring 1996. For students enrolled prior to that date, 
recreation management requires 1 26 hours for graduation. For further 
information, contact the Department of Leisure Studies, 104 Huff Hall, 
1206 S. Fourth Street, Champaign, IL 61820, (217) 333-4410 



1. Students are advised to contact the undergraduate academic adviser for the most 
current curriculum information. 

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM 

All students in the Department of Leisure Studies must satisfactorily 
complete the Internship Program prior to graduation. The program is 
designed to augment formal classroom instruction with active expe- 
riential learning under the guidance of an agency-based supervisor. 
The program consists of two courses and a pre-internship field 
experience. The pre-internship program requires students to accumu- 
late a minimum of 300 hours practical work experience in leisure

service settings. It is strongly recommended that students begin 
acquiring field experiences as early in their academic career as pos- 
sible. Students register for LEIST 280 in the first semester of their 
senior year. During this semester, students make final arrangements 
for completing LEIST 284 — Leisure Studies Practicum the following 
semester. 

The practicum is taken after the student satisfactorily completes all 
course work including LEIST 280, and fulfills the pre-internship field 
experience. LEIST 284 is taken in agencies that are approved by the 
department and contracted for this program. Since a limited number 
of assignments for practicums are available in the campus area, most 
students look forward to the opportunity of an off-campus assign- 
ment. 

REQUIREMENTS INCLUDING GENERAL EDUCATION 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the 
colleges and departments are working to implement enhanced gen- 
eral education requirements. Some changes in requirements are ex- 
pected. Thus, new students should confirm their general education 
requirements by consulting college and departmental offices, hand- 
books, or advisers. The Department of Leisure Studies also requires 
that certain courses from the approved lists be taken as noted below. 
The prescribed courses prepare the student for upper division study 
and may be used to satisfy General Education requirements provided 
they are on the appropriate General Education List. Further informa- 
tion about career opportunities in leisure studies is available from the 
director of undergraduate studies in 104 Huff Hall, 1206 South Fourth 
Street, Champaign, IL 61820, (217) 333-4410.

CURRICULUM IN SPEECH AND HEARING SCIENCE' 

The undergraduate curriculum in Speech and Hearing Science can be 
taken as a broad background in the biological, behavioral, linguistic, 
and social foundations of human communication to prepare interper- 
sonal human communication specialists who may pursue graduate 
education in many fields related to human communication and health. 
The curriculum may also be taken as a preprofessional program for 
individuals who specifically plan to work as speech-language pa- 
thologists in medical or school settings or as audiologists. The degree 
requires at least 128 hours, excluding military training. Undergradu- 
ate students who wish to become speech-language pathologists or 
audiologists must plan on continuing their studies at the graduate 
level as required for certification by the American Speech-Language- 
Hearing Association. In addition to required courses, students who 
desire to work in the public schools in the State of Illinois can fulfill 
requirements for State Teacher Certification by completing an addi- 
tional set of courses specified in the undergraduate curriculum. For 
further information, contact the Department of Speech and Hearing 
Science, 220 Speech and Hearing Building, 901 S. Sixth Street, Cham- 
paign, IL 61820, (217) 333-2230. 



' Studentsare advised that thei umrulum is i urrently being reviewed and revised and 
is likely to change prior to 2003. Therefore it is important that the undergraduate 
academii advise] be contacted for the most current curriculum information and to 

pinmote lle..i|.ihl\ ii irseworl I options that are compatible with other degree 

programs. 

REQUIREMENTS INCLUDING GENERAL EDUCATION 

The Department of Speech and Hearing Science requires that certain

Institute of Aviation 



Willard Airport 
One Willard Road 
Savoy, IL 61874 
(217) 244-8671 

The Institute of Aviation is responsible for the promotion and corre- 
lation of education and research activities related to aviation at the 
University. Its director has the advice and assistance of an executive 
committee. The Institute holds Federal Aviation Administration (FA A) 
Airman Examining (Pilot) Agency Certificate Number 1, which per- 
mits it to issue pilot certificates and ratings to its graduates on behalf 
of the FAA. 

Typically, new freshmen are accepted for admission during the fall 
semester, but a few students are accepted for the spring semester. 

Two curricula are offered: the Aviation Human Factors curricu- 
lum and the Professional Pilot curriculum. Students completing the 
Aviation Human Factors curriculum receive a B.S. degree in Aviation. 
This curriculum includes two core components; (1) the professional 
pilot instructional component leading to the FAA commercial pilot 
certificate with multi-engine, instrument, and flight instructor certifi- 
cates and ratings, and (2) the human factors component including 
cockpit resource management, aviation psychology, and aviation 
accident investigation and analysis. Students must also complete 
thirty-four elective hours. 

Students graduating from the Professional Pilot curriculum com- 
plete a two-year professional pilot instructional sequence similar to 
the component listed above, and may then transfer to any degree- 
granting division of the University to complete requirements for a 
baccalaureate degree in that division. This may require from four to 
six additional semesters following the four Professional Pilot semes- 
ters. A University student outside the Institute of Aviation may elect 
flight courses with the permission of his or her department and the 
permission of the Institute of Aviation. Qualified students are invited 
to apply for transfer into the Institute of Aviation. 
Special fees ranging from $813 to $5,546 are charged for a course 
involving flight training in addition to the estimated costs listed in the 
Student Costs section. These fees are subject to change as operating 
costs change. 

The institute's Aviation Research Laboratory conducts interdisci- 
plinary research in many areas related to flight. The institute manages 
Willard Airport, located six miles southwest of the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus. The airport also provides the University and commu- 
nity with excellent air transportation facilities.

college w ork. Students are required to elect courses in other colleges 
of the I ruversit) including mathematics, rhetoric, humanities and 
the arts speech and natural and behavioral sciences, and to secure as 
liberal an education as possible to avoid the narrowing effects of 
overspecialization. through a cooperative arrangement with the Col- 
lege of Liberal Arts and Sciences, students in that college may major 
in economic- or finance 

The College of Commerce and Business Administration offers 
graduate and professional programs in one of the areas of business 
and economics, or in a nonbusiness area such as liberal arts, science, 
or engineering Detailed information on graduate programs may be 
obtained from the Graduate College. 

Departments and Curricula 

I ndergraduate instruction in the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration is organized under the Departments of Accountancy, 
Business Administration, Economics, and Finance. Each of these 
departments offers courses that provide one or more curricula that a 
student may elect. These curricula lead to bachelor of science degrees 
in the various fields of study in the college and are designed to 
encourage each student to fully realize his or her intellectual 
promise. 

Requirements 



ADMISSION 

Applicants must meet general University requirements as well as 
those specified by the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration. 

Students transferring from other colleges must have achieved 
junior standing and met the requirements specified by the college. 

MATHEMATICS PLACEMENT TEST 

Students are required to take the Mathematics Placement Test before 
registering in the college. The results of the test are used to place 
students in MATH 112 or to exempt them from college algebra and 
allow them to enroll in the first course of one of the mathematics 
sequences required for graduation (see below). 

GRADUATION 

Students in the College of Commerce and Business Administration 
who meet the University's requirements with reference to registra- 
tion, residence, and fees and who maintain satisfactory scholastic 
records in the college are awarded degrees appropriate to their 
curricula. 

Each candidate for a degree must have a 2.0 (A = 4.0) grade point 
average or above for all courses counted toward graduation, a 2.0 
grade point average or above for all courses taken at this University, 
a 2.0 grade point average or above for all courses taken in the major or 
field of concentration, and a 2.0 grade point average or above for 
courses taken in the major or field of concentration at this University. 
Each student may select only one major or field of concentration. 

Students are responsible for meeting the requirements for gradu- 
ation. Therefore, students should familiarize themselves with the 
requirements listed in this catalog and other information in the Office 
of Undergraduate Affairs, 214 David Kinley Hall, and should refer to 
them each time they plan their programs. 

MATHEMATICS REQUIREMENT 

Any one of the sequences described below meets the College of 
Commerce and Business Administration requirement. A new student 
need only select which mathematics sequence to enter. Decisions on 
how far to go in a sequence can be made later as the student gains 
experience and firms up career objectives. 

The most appropriate mathematics sequence depends on the 
student's background, interest, motivation, and objectives. Back- 
ground can be evaluated in terms of mathematics courses already 
completed and the student's score on the Mathematics Placement 
Test. Interest, motivation, and objectives must be determined by the 
student. The four sequences open to the student are: 
— MATH 135. This course provides a thorough background in calcu- 
lus for students having a previous analytic geometry course. This 
course or the next sequence should be chosen by students whose 
interests and objectives require strong mathematics. 
— MATH 120 and 130. This sequence is appropriate for those students 
with a good background in mathematics but who have not had 



analytic geometry. Students who believe they may want to take 
upper-level courses in mathematics should take this sequence. 
— MATH 125 and 134. This sequence provides a good background in 
linear algebra and calculus. It is difficult to take upper-level courses in 
mathematics after this sequence. 

— MATH 120 and 125. This is an alternative to the previous sequence. 
It is particularly suitable for those with AP credit in calculus who do 
not plan to take upper-level mathematics courses. 

RESIDENCY 

Students must spend either the first three years, earning not fewer 
than 90 semester hours, or the last year (two semesters, or the equiva- 
lent), earning not fewer than 30 semester hours, in residence on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus, uninterrupted by any work at another 
institution. 

All commerce students must, after attaining junior standing, earn 
at the University of Illinois or another approved four-year institution 
at least 60 semester hours acceptable toward their degree. 

Special Programs 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

Honors, designated on diplomas, are awarded to superior students as 
follows: for graduation with honors, a minimum grade point average 
of 3.5 (A = 4.0) in all courses accepted toward the student's degree; for 
graduation with high honors, a minimum grade point average of 3.75 
in all courses accepted toward the degree; and for graduation with 
highest honors, a minimum grade point average of 3.90 in all courses 
accepted toward the degree. To qualify for graduation honors, trans- 
fer students' University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and total 
cumulative grade point averages both must qualify. 

Curricula 



CORE CURRICULUM 



Normally, students must register for not fewer than 12 hours or more 
than 18 hours in each semester. Students should take mathematics, 
economics, and accountancy courses in the semesters indicated in the 
sample schedule of courses. The computer science course must be 
taken during the first year. A required course that is failed must be 
repeated the next semester. 

A student with fewer than 30 hours of credit is required to have his 
or her program for the semester approved by an adviser in the college 
office. 

Up to 4 hours of credit in basic physical education may be counted 
in the 124 hours necessary for graduation. Physical education grades 
are counted in the graduation grade point average. 

Any course used to fill a specific degree requirement may not be 
taken on the credit-no credit grade option. Only free electives may be 
taken on the credit-no credit option.

CURRICULUM IN ACCOUNTANCY 



For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Accountancy 

Organizations are a nexus of contracts, implicit and explicit, among 
resource owners who contract with each other to the benefit of all. In 
most complex organizations, these contracts specify who has the 
knowledge, and thus the rights, to make decisions about the use and 
control of the contracted resources. The effectiveness arid efficiency of 
decisions regarding initiation, execution, and monitoring of organiza- 
tions' contracts depend on the quantity and quality of information 
available. The accountant assists in the development, accumulation, 
evaluation, and dissemination of the information necessary for con- 
tracting parties to make effective and efficient contracting decisions. 
Organizations, in turn, contract with various segments of society such 
as labor unions, capital markets, regulatory agencies, and govern- 
ments. The accountant assists in the development, accumulation, 
evaluation, and dissemination of the information necessary for ensur- 
ing that organizations comply with the terms of their social contracts. 

Study in accountancy is designed to prepare individuals for entry 
into the accountancy professions independent of subsequent special- 
ization. This preparation includes knowledge of the activities of 
organizations, businesses, and accounting practices; intellectual, in- 
terpersonal, and communication skills; and personal capabilities and 
professional attitudes. Specializations in accountancy include such 
fields as financial accounting, management accounting, accounting 
information systems, taxation, and auditing. Specialization in an 
accounting field requires additional graduate education and practical 
experience. 

Minimum requirements in the major for the Bachelor of Science 
Degree in Accountancy are:*

CURRICULUM IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Business 
Administration 

The Department of Business Administration offers eight separate 
undergraduate concentrations: marketing, organizational adminis- 
tration, production, management science, industrial distribution man- 
agement, management information systems, entrepreneurship, and 
food and agribusiness management. 

Marketing encompasses those business activities directly related 
to the process of placing meaningful assortments of goods and ser- 
vices in the hands of the consumer. The marketing student is con- 
cerned with the efficient performance of marketing activities and with 
their effective coordination with the other operations of the firm. 
Organizational administration is concerned primarily with the effec- 
tive utilization of human resources within the business organization. 
Attention is focused on the organization as a social system and the 
(ones thai .litre I this system, such as the behavior of individuals and 
groups, economic conditions, and technology. Production and opera- 
tions management is concerned primarily with the efficient utilization

d die organization's material resources. Attention is focused on the 
design and improvement of productive capacit) and the coordination 
of the producth e process with other sj stem acth ities. I he industrial 
distribution management concentration stresses the distribution and 
logistics function in me industrial sector of theeconomj . \\ ith particu- 
lar reference to business to businees relations. Problems in the man- 
agement of industrial distribution businesses, both as suppliers to and 
customers of manufacturers and other businesses, receive special 
attention. The concentration in management information systems 
permits students to acquire the skills necessary to analyze 
management's needs for information and identify efficient and effec- 
tive methods to pro\ ide management with such information. Entre- 
preneurship is the study of the emerging and rapidly growing busi- 
ness organization. It is intended for students who hope to start and 
own their own businesses. The concentration in food and agribusiness 
management emphasizes management in one of the most challenging 
and important sectors in the U.S. and world economies. Food and 
agribusiness executives will need to be trained to apply innovative 
management thinking to deal with technological change, global busi- 
ness ventures, and changing food habits and tastes among consumers.

administration, accountancy, or finance (10 hours for students ma]onng in industrial

CURRICULUM IN ECONOMICS 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Economics 

Economics has been defined as the study of how people use limited 
resources to produce various goods and services for the unlimited 
material wants of the population. So, the economist is concerned with 
what is produced, how goods and services are distributed, the orga- 
nization of industries, labor supply and its use, international trade, 
production and distribution of national income, government finance, 
and the use and conservation of land and natural resources. 

An economics major, like all CBA majors, first establishes a core of 
knowledge in intermediate economic theory and statistics. The stu- 
dent may then specialize in one of several areas such as taxation and 
government finance, international economics, economic history, la- 
bor economics, economic development, quantitative economics, or 
public policy. The economics major can alternatively take a general 
rather than specialized approach to economics. 

An economics major is well prepared for further study in an 
M.B. A. or law program or for graduate work in areas such as econom- 
ics, planning and administration, or policy studies. Career opportuni- 
ties include sales and management positions in business, industry, 
and government; teaching and administrative positions in colleges 
and universities; and research positions in private and public institu- 
tions. 

Requirements for the degree include ECON 301 plus 12 additional 
hours in economics at the 200 or 300 level (excluding ECON 295 and 
299). Students with interest in further work in economics are advised 
to fulfill the college mathematics requirement with MATH 120 and 
130 or MATH 135, and to take additional training in courses such as 
MATH 242 or 245 and MATH 315. 

Courses used to satisfy a major in economics may not be taken on 
a credit-no credit basis. 

CURRICULUM IN FINANCE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Finance 

The field of finance is primarily concerned with the acquisition and 
management of funds by business firms, governments, and individu- 
als. A business seeks financial advice when considering the purchase 
of new equipment, the expansion of present facilities, or the raising of 
additional funds. Determining the value of financial and real assets 
and derivatives is a key activity in finance. 

As the study of finance is designed to provide the student with 
both the theoretical background and the analytical tools required to 
make effective judgments in finance, many students select careers in 
business financial management, commercial and investment bank- 
ing, investments, government finance, insurance, and real estate. 

HOURS REQUIRED COURSES 

3 FIN 300— Financial Markets (Prerequisite: FIN 254; C S 105 or 

electronic spreadsheet competency)

Finance faculty and approved by the Department of 

Finance chairperson. 



* Discovery courses 

ADVISING NOTES: 

— Courses taken to fulfill major requirements may not be taken on a credit-no credit 

basis. 

— It is recommended that finance majors take twelve to fifteen hours of accounting. 

ACCY 201 and 202 are required. However, many employers look favorably upon 

additional accounting courses. It is possible to earn enough hours to take the CPA 

exam. For those interested in financial reporting, we suggest ACCY 301 as the next 

course of choice; should you wish to take additional courses beyond ACCY 301, we 

would recommend ACCY 303, followed by ACCY 310. For those interested in 

managerial control and decision making, we would recommend ACCY 301 and 302, 

followed by ACCY 304, followed by ACCY 312.

College of Communications 



119 Gregory Hall 
810 South Wright Street 
I'rbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-2350 

For students with two years of college and commitments to careers in 
communications, the College of Communications offers an additional 
two years of education leading to bachelor of science degrees in 
advertising, in journalism, and in media studies. 

Through its professional programs, the college strives to give 
students in advertising and journalism broad career competence in 
their chosen fields of communications, while ensuring that they 
acquire solid backgrounds in the social sciences and humanities. Its 
premise is that students need an understanding of people and the 
world they live in if they are to communicate effectively through print 
and electronic media. 

Through its nonprofessional media studies program, the college 
offers students the opportunity to study, analyze, and critique mod- 
em communications media, again with a firm foundation in the social 
sciences and humanities. 

The college has modern equipment and facilities for teaching 
future communications practitioners — reporting, editing, graphic arts, 
and photojournalism laboratories, in addition to editing studios for 
radio and television production and the new Richmond Journalism 
Teaching Studio. The Communications Library is generally recog- 
nized as one of the best in the nation. The departments of advertising 
and journalism maintain job placement services for their students. 

the college is also the supervising administrative unit for the 
University Broadcasting Division (WILL-AM, -FM, and -TV) and the 
Institute of Communications Research, where the media studies pro- 
gram is administered. 

Instruction in journalism at the University was begun in 1902 as 
part of the course offering in rhetoric and was organized as a division 
of the Department of English in 1916. The School of Journalism was 
established in 1927 as a separate unit. In 1950, it became the School of 
Journalism and Communications with divisions of journalism, adver- 
tising, and radio, the last of which later added instruction in television. 
In 1957 the school was elevated to college status, and two years later 
the college's three divisions were redesignated as departments. The 
present name — College of Communications — was adopted in 1968. 

Departments and Curricula 

Through its Departments of Advertising and Journalism, the college, 
which has been accredited by the American Council on Education for 
Journalism and Mass Communication, offers professional education 
in three sequences — advertising, news-editorial journalism, and broad- 
cast journalism. A bachelor of science degree is also offered in media 
studies through the Institute of Communications Research. 

The Department of Advertising supervises work in the advertising 
curriculum for students expecting to enter advertising agencies, pub- 
lic relations firms, non-profit organizations, or the marketing depart- 
ments of corporations. The department aims to educate students to 
become analytical, flexible, and creative professionals who are able to 
deal with current and future advertising challenges. 

The Department of Journalism seeks to prepare students for varied 
and long-term careers in print and electronic journalism. The primary 
professional aim of the news-editorial and broadcast sequences is to 
train students as public affairs reporters by providing them with the 
skills, knowledge, and understanding required for success as journal- 
ists. The department aims to prepare broadly educated professionals 
who will eventually assume decision-making and leadership roles. 

The Institute of Communications Research, through the media 
studies curriculum, gives students concentrated formal academic 
study in the development of the communications media and their 
underlying technologies. 

The Departments of Advertising and Journalism offer graduate 
programs leading to master of science degrees in advertising and in 



ADMISSION 

For admission to the College of Communications, a student must 
complete 60 semester hours of acceptable undergraduate college 
work and present a grade point average of at least 3.0 (A = 4.0) and 
evidence of interest in the practice and /or study of communications. 
The competitive grade point average in recent years has been higher 
for particular majors. Applicants with less than a 3.0 grade point 
average may be considered if they demonstrate strong motivation and 
aptitude, provided that spaces are available. 

Since they must have junior standing to be eligible to enter the 
College of Communications, students at the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign are advised to register as freshmen and sopho- 
mores in the prejournalism curriculum of the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences and to follow a broad general education program. 
Students at other institutions should follow similar programs. 

Although there is no formal preadvertising or prejournalism pro- 
gram, a strongly recommended program for each college curriculum 
for the first two years is available in the college office. These programs 
include basic courses in economics, English, history, philosophy, 
sociology, and anthropology, as well as courses satisfying the 
University's general education requirements. Students who do not 
have a reasonable degree of typing ability should acquire this skill 
before entering the college, because it is desirable in all curricula. A 
basic knowledge of computer skills is also useful. 

Students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign should 
make arrangements at the college office to apply for an intra-college 
transfer early in the second semester of their sophomore year. Junior 
standing is necessary for students to take most courses offered by the 
College of Communications. 

Students completing their freshman and sophomore studies at 
institutions other than the University of Illinois are strongly advised 
to defer courses in advertising, journalism, and communications until 
enrolled in the College of Communications. Students must take all of 
their required communications courses in the College of Communica- 
tions. They may be permitted to transfer up to nine hours of elective 
communications courses taken elsewhere, provided that they take an 
equivalent number of additional hours in advanced social studies, 
arts, and sciences beyond the 20 semester hours required for gradua- 
tion from the college. 

The college does not recommend that students with more than 90 
hours enter any of its undergraduate programs. The programs are 
designed for completion within four semesters. In certain cases, it is 
possible to complete the curriculum requirements in three semesters 
if prerequisites in sequential courses can be met. The college does not 
accept a student who has already received a bachelor's degree as a 
candidate for a second bachelor's degree. Instead, it recommends that 
such a student enter one of its graduate programs. 

GRADUATION 

The college offers programs of study leading to bachelor of science 
degrees in advertising, journalism, and in media studies. To meet the 
degree requirements, all students must satisfy general University 
requirements as to registration, residence, scholarship, and fees. They 
also must complete the University general education. All students 
must also fulfill the following general requirements of the College of 
Communications: 

— Complete a total of 124 semester hours of course credit. Basic 
physical education activity courses and basic courses in military, 
naval, or air force science may not be counted toward this total 
although such credits may be counted toward meeting the admission 
requirement of 60 semester hours. No more than a total of 12 hours 
earned in undergraduate open seminars (199 courses), in independent 
study courses outside the college, and in other experimental courses 
may be counted toward the degrees offered by the college. A student 
in the college may enroll in one such course for a maximum of four 
hours of credit in any semester with the consent of the head of the 
student's major department. The same policy is applied to credit for 
internships in fields other than communications with the additional 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



requirement that such courses must also be approved by the dean of 
the college. While the college encourages its students to hold intern- 
ships in the communications field, particularly in the summer be- 
tween the junior and senior years, it does not allow academic credit 
toward the degree for such experience alone. Credit granted by other 
institutions for internships is not accepted. 

— Complete not less than 30 hours but not more than 36 hours in 
courses offered by the college in advertising, communications, and 
journalism. Those undergraduate courses cross-listed with advertis- 
ing or journalism courses are considered college course offerings. 
Undergraduate communications courses cross-listed only with de- 
partments outside the college are not counted as college offerings, 
except COMM 251, 275, and 377. 

— Complete not less than 20 hours in advanced (200- and 300-level) 
courses at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the social 
studies, arts, and sciences approved by the faculty. 

— Complete the specific requirements of one of the curricula offered 
by the college, as listed below. 

— Complete 90 hours of credit outside the college, of which 65 hours 
must be taken in the liberal arts and sciences. 

— Earn a grade point average of 2.0 (A = 4.0) in all courses presented 
for the degree. Earn a 2.0 cumulative grade point average for all 
courses taken while registered in the college. Earn a cumulative 2.0 
grade point average for the 30-36 hour courses required for the major. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

To be graduated from the College of Communications, students must 
satisfy the University's general education requirements, which in- 
clude completion of the two-course composition requirement; a Quan- 
titative Reasoning requirement; six hours of Cultural Studies; a mini- 
mum of six hours each in the humanities, social sciences, and natural 
sciences; and the foreign language requirement for students enrolled 
as freshmen in Fall 2001 and thereafter. Any substitution of courses 
must be approved by the dean of the college. 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the 
colleges and departments are working to implement enhanced gen- 
eral education requirements. Thus, new students should confirm their 
general education requirements by consulting college and depart- 
mental offices, handbooks, or advisers. 

Special Programs 

EDMUND J. JAMES SCHOLARS 

The College of Communications does not have a college honors 
program. However, a student who transfers into the College of 
Communications from another college on the Urbana-Champaign 
campus and is a James Scholar in the previous college at the time of 
transfer will continue to be listed as a James Scholar in the College of 
Communications through the end of the first spring semester in the 
college. If the student has a cumulative and semester grade point 
average of 3.5 or above (A = 4.0) at that time, he or she will be certified 
as a James Scholar for the next academic year when his or her records 
will be reviewed for certification. Any student whose cumulative and 
semester average falls below 3.5 will not be certified and will be 
removed from the James Scholars listing. Designation as a James 
Scholar is available only to a student who was previously so desig- 
nated. 

DEANS LIST 

To be eligible for Dean's List recognition for any semester, students 
must rank in the top 20 percent of their respective classes and must 
successfully complete 14 academic hours, of which at least 12 hours 
must be traditionally graded hours (excluding course work graded 
pass-fail, credit-no credit, satisfactory-unsatisfactory, excused, or de- 
ferred) and excluding grades and hours in basic physical education 
courses and religious founi I. it ion courses.

College of Education 



110 Education Building 
1310 South Sixth Street 
Champaign, IL 61820 
(217) 333-2800 

The College of Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign offers undergraduate degree programs in two of the six 
departments within the college. The departments that offer under- 
graduate degree programs, and the programs offered by each, are 
described below. 

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers degree 
programs in elementary education and early childhood education 
and provides the supporting course work for the teacher education 
minor in secondary education. Students who satisfactorily complete 
the degree program in elementary education are eligible for the 
University's recommendation for Illinois certification in grades kin- 
dergarten through nine. The early childhood education degree pro- 
gram prepares students for recommendation for Illinois early child- 
hood certification (birth through grade three). The program also 
incorporates course work leading to an early childhood special edu- 
cation approval. Only students who have earned at least 60 semester 
hours are considered for admission to the elementary or early child- 
hood curricula. The teacher education minor in secondary education 
is a component of the teaching option within the following Sciences 
and Letters majors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: biology, 
chemistry, English, geology, history, mathematics, physics, and speech. 
Students who satisfactorily complete an LAS degree in one of these 
areas and the teacher education minor in secondary education are 
eligible for the University's recommendation for Illinois certification 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



in grades six through twelve. For additional information regarding 
Liberal Arts and Sciences requirements, see the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences section elsewhere in this catalog. Additional information 
regarding the teacher education minor in secondary education may be 
found at the end of the College of Education's section. 

The Department of Special Education offers an undergraduate 
degre program that prepares students to teach persons with moderate 
to severe disabilities. Students who satisfactorily complete the degree 
program in special education are eligible for the University's recom- 
mendation for Illinois certification in grades kindergarten through 
twelve with an endorsement in trainable mentally handicapped. This 
program is able to accommodate only a small number of juniors and 
seniors. Applicants to this program must complete special admission 
procedures. 

In addition to these degree programs, a two-year curriculum in the 
College of Education, called education general, is available to students 
who have completed less than 60 semester hours of credit. It is 
designed to accommodate students admitted as freshmen who are 
uncertain about the specific degree programs they wish to pursue in 
the College of Education and who need to complete the 60 hours 
required for admission to all curricula in the college. 

In addition to offering undergraduate degree programs in educa- 
tion, the College of Education, under the auspices of the Council on 
Teacher Education, cooperates with four other undergraduate col- 
leges on the Urbana-Champaign campus to provide courses in profes- 
sional education to undergraduate students who are preparing for 
careers in teaching and special educational services. 

The College of Education also offers graduate degree programs. 
Detailed information concerning graduate programs in education 
may be obtained by referring to the College of Education Graduate 
Programs Handbook available in 120 Education Building. 

Requirements 

ADMISSION 

All freshmen are admitted to the education general curriculum. Junior 
standing, at least 60 semester hours of baccalaureate-oriented course 
work attained at an accredited institution of higher learning, is re- 
quired for admission to the programs in special education, elementary 
education, early childhood education and the teacher education mi- 
nor in secondary education. 

Admission to the College of Education at any level (freshmen, 
transfers from other institutions, or on-campus transfers from other 
colleges) is competitive. Freshmen must complete the University's 
minimum high school subject pattern described in the undergraduate 
admissions section elsewhere in this catalog. In addition, freshman 
applications are evaluated for admission based on ACT/SAT scores 
and the high school percentile rank achieved at the conclusion of the 
junior year in high school. Admission for transfer from other institu- 
tions and for on-campus transfer is based on the following criteria: the 
cumulative and University of Illinois grade point average(s), grades 
earned in the course work of the intended major, completion of 
required course pattern, the quality of the applicant's background 
statement, and space availability in the desired curriculum. At the 
time of publication, the minimum grade point average for transfer 
admission was 3.1. A student whose cumulative average is below the 
minimum criteria may be considered individually, on a petition basis, 
if enrollment vacancies exist in the curriculum to which the student is 
seeking admission and if a compelling rationale is presented. 

GRADUATION 

Each undergraduate student in the College of Education must meet 

the Uni\ ii it) requirements and the requirements of the Council on 

Teacher Education for graduation; both sets of requirements are

and Natural Sciences/Technology. In most teacher education cur- 
ricula, additional credit in these areas is required. These requirements 
are generally fulfilled by course work offered by the College of Liberal 
Arts and Sciences. Students must select their courses for general 
education from the campus general education course list that may be 
accessed on the Web at http://www.provost.uiuc.edu/gened/.

This minor is a component of rh e tf ar hi "^ "piMwunrifhin the following 
Science and Letters majors: biology, chemistry, English, geology, 
history, mathematics, physics, and speech. For admission to the 
teaching option within those majors, see the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences section elsewhere in this catalog. 

Transfer into the teaching option within a major can be made only 
by students who have received approval to complete the minor in 
education. Approval for the minor in education is gained by success- 
ful application to the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the 
College of Education, upon recommendation by the subject area 
committees of the Council on Teacher Education. 

Two prerequisite courses must be completed before transfer to the 
teaching option in any major: Educational Psychology 21 I>nd Educa- 
tional Policy Studies 201/202- Additionally, each major stipulates 
otherprerequisite courses that must be completed before admission to 
the teaching option. Interested students should see the academic 
advisers in the major for information on prerequisite courses. 

Some students will be able to complete all the prerequisite courses 
for transfer into the teaching option of their major by the spring of their 
sophomore year; those students may be able to complete the require- 
ments for the bachelor's degree in LAS, as well as the minor in 
education and all other requirements for teacher certification in four 
years. 

Students who establish eligibility to transfer into the teaching 
option of their major in the spring of their junior year will need five 
years to satisfy the requirements for teacher certification. Those stu- 
dents, however, may be able to petition to count as graduate credit up 
to 15 hours of course credit in excess of the minimum required for the

MISSION 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was founded in 1867 
as a state-supported, land-grant institution with a threefold mission of 
teaching, research, and public service. Based on that foundation, the 
mission of the College of Engineering is to meet the needs of the state 
and nation through excellence in education, research, and public 
service. The goals are to instill in students the attitudes, values, vision, 
and training that will prepare them for lifetimes of continued learning 
and leadership in engineering and other fields; to generate new 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



knowledge for the benefit of society; and to provide special services 
when there are needs that the college is uniquely qualified to meet. 

VISION 

The vision of the College of Engineering is to be a distinguished 
institution, providing knowledge that focuses on the creation and 
management of svstems and resources. This knowledge is to be shared 
by motivating aft educating qualified students to master the most 
important components of science and engineering at all levels. The 
students are also to have an appreciation for human and ethical values 
and to master the skills of oral and written communication. The value 
of this combined knowledge is measured by its connection to effective 
products, processes, and services that address the needs of society. 

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES 

The College of Engineering prepare men and women for professional 
careers in engineering and related positions in industry, commerce, 
education, and government. Graduates at the bachelors level are 
prepared to begin the practice of engineering or to continue their 
formal education at a graduate school of their choice. Based on the 
mission and vision statement of the college, each engineering pro- 
gram has developed educational objectives that are further explained 
in the curricular sections of this catalog. In general, all the programs 
provide students with a comprehensive education that includes in- 
depth instruction in their chosen fields of study. The curricula are 
designed to emphasize analysis and problem solving and to provide 
exposure to open-ended problems and design methods. The courses 
are taught in a manner that fosters teamwork, communication skills, 
and individual professionalism, including ethics and environmental 
awareness. The classroom experiences, along with outside activities, 
prepare students for lifetimes of continued learning and leadership. 
Thus, the engineering programs enable graduates to make significant 
contributions in their chosen fields while at the same time recognizing 
their responsibilities to society. 

OUTCOMES AND ASSESSMENT 

To accomplish the educational objectives and to comply with current 
engineering accreditation standards, all engineering programs achieve 
the following outcomes: 

• an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engi- 
neering 

• an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze 
and interpret data 

• an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired 
needs 

• an ability to function on multidisciplinary teams 

• an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems 

• an understanding of professional and ethical responsibility 

• an ability to communicate effectively 

• the broad education necessary to understand the impact of engi- 
neering solutions in a global and societal context 

• a recognition of the need for and an ability to engage in life-long 
learning 

• a knowledge of contemporary issues 

• an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools 
necessary for engineering practice 

The catalog contains the curricula of the various engineering 
programs offered at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 
Further descriptions of these and any additional educational objec- 
tives and outcomes are presented at the beginning of each program 
listing. An assessment system for continuous measurement, evalua- 
te >n, and improvement is in place at each department. In addition, the 
college conducts surveys, collects collegewide data, and provides 
■ k rdination and assistance to the departments for the overall pro- 
cess. 

PROFESSIONAL COMPONENT 

Each engineering program also contains a professional component, as

content of the curriculum and is consistent with the objectives of the 
program and the institution. 

The paragraphs below further describe all these elements of cur- 
riculum and expected student outcomes and experiences. 

BREADTH OF CURRICULA 

The college provides training in the mathematical and physical sci- 
ences and their application to a broad spectrum of technological and 
social requirements of society. The engineering curricula, although 
widely varied and specialized, are built on a general foundation of 
scientific theory applicable to many different fields. Work in the 
classroom and laboratory is brought into sharper focus by practical 
problems that the student solves by methods similar to those of 
practicing engineers. Engineering design experience is introduced 
early in the curriculum, is integrated throughout, and culminates in a 
major design project team-work experience in the senior year. 

Although each student pursues a curriculum chosen to meet 
individual career goals, all students take certain courses Basic courses 
in mathematics, chemistry, physics, rhetoric, and compute science are 
required in the first two years. The scientific and technical portion of 
the majors provides the rudimentary development of technical skills, 
the modern engineering tools and methods for solving problems in 
practice, the design of experiments and associated data analysis, an 
under standing of values and cost, an understanding of the ethical 
characteristics of the engineering profession and practice, a sensitivity 
to the socially related technical problems that confront the health and 
safety, and the ability and emphasis for maintaining professional 
competence through lifelong learning. Although the curricula are 
progressively specialized in the third and fourth years, each student 
is required to take some courses outside his or her chosen field. 

Nontechnical courses are included in each curriculum; they may 
be required or elective. Many nontechnical courses satisfy the broad 
objectives of the humanities and social sciences requirements of the 
engineering curricula, enabling strong, effective communications, 
making the student keenly aware of the urgent contemporary prob- 
lems of society, and developing a deeper appreciation of human 
cultural achievements in a global context. The humanities and social 
sciences courses are usually drawn from the liberal arts and sciences, 
economics, and approved courses in fine and applied arts. A student 
who desires a broader cultural background may wish to consider a 
combined engineering-liberal arts and science program. 

LIBRARY RESOURCES 

The Grainger Engineering Library Information Center is a major 
resource center for students in all curricula. State-of-the-art resources 
include a digital imaging lab, computer and multimedia lab, instruc- 
tional services lab, information retrieval research lab, and high-tech 
classrooms. It also contains the reference books, periodicals, catalogs, 
and technical publications that students need constantly and provides 
materials for general reading and private research. 

Departments and Curricula 

The College of Engineering includes the Departments of Aeronautical 
and Astronautical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineer- 
ing, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Gen- 
eral Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical and 
Industrial Engineering, Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineer- 
ing, Physics, and Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. The under- 
graduate curricula described later in this section are administered by 
these units. The work in chemical engineering is administered by the 
C ollege of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The curriculum in agricultural 
engineering is administered jointly by the College of Agricultural, 
Consumer, and Environmental Sciences and the College of Engineer- 
ing.

Admission Requirements 



ENTERING FRESHMAN ADMISSIONS 

Students seeking admission to the College of Engineering who are 
recent high school graduates or who have earned fewer than 12 
semester hours of credit at other collegiate institutions are classified as 
new freshmen and must meet the entrance requirements to the Col- 
lege of Engineering that are specified for new freshmen. Students are 
admitted to the college on a best-qualified basis as determined by ACT 
composite scores and high school percentile ranks supplied on high 
school transcripts. 

Although new freshmen take a common, or similar, program, they 
are asked to choose a curriculum in which they wish to study. A 
freshman usually can change the curriculum of study during the 
freshman year. Some restrictions apply when differential admission 
procedures are used. Because the program of study is essentially the 
same for all freshman students, such changes can be made without 
loss of credit toward graduation. 

The advanced Mathematics Placement Test and Chemistry Place- 
ment Test are required of all freshman students entering the College 
of Engineering. They are urged to take the examination during the 
spring testing period before enrollment. Proficiency exams in chemis- 
try and mathematics are available. A student with advanced place- 
ment credit in mathematics, chemistry, or physics will receive credit 
toward graduation and will be placed in advanced course work 
consistent with academic preparation.

TRANSFER STUDENT ADMISSION 

The College of Engineering admits qualified transfer students from 
both community and four-year colleges and has worked closely with 
these schools in Illinois to implement coordinated engineering pro- 
grams. 

Students may complete the first two years of study in other 
accredited institutions and transfer to the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign with little or no loss of credit, provided that they 
follow the proper program. A suggested list of courses that should be 
completed in the first two years before transferring is given below. A 
range of hours is given in each of these course work areas because the 
major concern is that students have an adequate coverage of basic 
subject matter rather than specific numbers of hours in given areas. 
Ranges are given applicable to both quarter-hour and semester-hour 
systems.

Students should complete as many of the suggested courses as 
possible and select additional courses from those in the Other Courses 
list above to complete full-time study programs. Normally, a student 
will complete all of the suggested courses and 8 to 10 additional 
semester hours of course work. This additional course work may 
include social sciences and humanities electives but could include 
work in computer science or advanced mathematics. 

Before selecting social sciences and humanities electives, students 
should familiarize themselves with the elective requirements of the 
college. A student who wants to transfer to the college must have a 
cumulative grade point average of at least 2.6 (A = 4.0) to apply, but 
competitive standards for admission are usually higher than the 2.6 
level. 

Students may transfer to the college for the fall, spring, or summer 
session provided they have met competitive grade point average 
cutoffs and have completed 60 or more semester hours of work. Both 
the overall GPA of all transferable courses and the separate GPA of the 
technical courses (mathematics, physics, chemistry) must meet or 
exceed the competitive cutoffs. Transfer students are required to have 
also completed the basic mathematics (through calculus), physics, 
chemistry, and English (rhetoric and composition) sequences in the 60 
or more semester hours required for transfer. Transfer students start- 
ing their studies in the fall semester are allowed to advance enroll 
during the preceding summer. Students are informed of this opportu- 
nity after they are admitted. Questions are invited concerning this 
procedure. 

A few sophomore-level technical courses may not be offered by 
most community colleges. However, junior-level transfer students 
can usually arrange their programs on the Urbana-Champaign cam- 
pus so that all technical requirements can be completed in a four- 
semester period on this campus if they wish to do so. If the number of 
hours remaining to complete a degree requires more than four semes- 
ters, the student may enroll for an additional summer session or 
semester. 

Students planning to transfer to the College of Engineering are 
encouraged to write to the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic 
Programs, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 206 Engineer- 
ing Hall, 1308 West Green Street, Urbana, IL 61801, or to the head of 
the department to which they wish to transfer. A student should 
complete all sequences in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and En- 
glish at one institution to maintain proper continuity. In cases where 
this is not possible, a student may enroll in a summer session to make 
up deficiencies. Individual program plans between most transfer 
institutions and the College of Engineering are available upon re- 
quest. 

Transfer students are not required to take freshman guidance 
examinations or any other examinations to qualify for admission to 
the College of Engineering, but all other admission regulations apply 
to them. Transfer students should consult Admission of Transfer 
Applicants in the universitywide Programs of Study catalog for general 
information concerning transfer to the University of Illinois at Ur- 
bana-Champaign, and students from community colleges should 
note especially the rules regarding community colleges in the 
universitywide Programs of Study catalog. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

The College of Engineering requires 18 hours of humanities and social 
sciences. The campus also has requirements that can be satisfied 
within the structure of the college requirements. Students should 
consult with the college and department offices and their advisers for 
specific information. 

Special Programs 

COMBINED ENGINEERING-LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 
PROGRAM 

A five-year program of study permits a student to earn a Bachelor of 
Science degree in a field of engineering from the College of Engineer- 
ing and a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree from the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the Urbana-Champaign cam- 
pus. 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 

86 



This program affords the student the opportunity to prepare for a 
career of an interdisciplinary nature. By selecting an appropriate 
liberal arts and sciences major in combination with the desired engi- 
neering curriculum, it is possible for a student to qualify for new 
careers in industry, business, or government. A student who desires 
a broader background than can be provided in the four-year engineer- 
ing curricula can develop a program that includes a well-rounded 
cultural education in addition to an engineering specialty. Each stu- 
dent must file an approved program with the College of Engineering 
office and with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

Advisers in both colleges assist in planning a program of study to 
meet the needs and requirements for both degrees. Most combinations 
of engineering and liberal arts curricula may be completed in ten 
semesters if the student does not have deficiencies in the entrance 
requirements of either college. 

Most engineering curricula can be combined with one of a variety 
of liberal arts and sciences majors, including languages, social sci- 
ences, humanities, speech communication, and philosophy. This com- 
bined program operates under the following conditions: 
— Students entering the program must meet admission requirements 
for both colleges. 

— A student who starts in the program and decides to transfer from it 
is subject to the existing graduation requirements of the college of his 
or her choice. 

— The degrees of Bachelor of Science in engineering and Bachelor of 
Arts or Bachelor of Science in liberal arts and sciences are awarded 
simultaneously. No student in the combined program is permitted to 
receive a degree from either college before completing the entire 
program. 

— Participants must satisfy the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
foreign language graduation requirement. 

— Students electing advanced Reserve Officers' Training Corps and 
Naval ROTC programs are required to meet these commitments in 
addition to the combined program as outlined. 
— Students with 75 or more hours of transfer credit are not advised to 
enter this program because they cannot ordinarily complete it in five 
years. 

— Students transferring from other colleges and universities must 
plan to complete at least one year in the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences at Urbana-Champaign and one year in the College of Engi- 
neering at Urbana-Champaign to satisfy residency requirements if 
both degrees are to be granted here. Other students should plan to 
spend a minimum of two years in each college. 
— A student is expected to maintain at least a 2.5 (A = 4.0) grade point 
average to be accepted or to continue in the program. A higher grade 
point average may be imposed. 

During the first year, students are enrolled in the common fresh- 
man program for engineers, which is taken in the College of Engineer- 
ing. Students are normally enrolled in the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences for the second and third years and in the College of Engineer- 
ing for the fourth and fifth years. A typical combined program follows:

AFFILIATIONS WITH OTHER LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES 

Through a program of affiliation between the College of Engineering 
and a number of liberal arts colleges, a student may enroll in a five- 
year program, earn a bachelor's degree from one of these colleges, and 
at the same time earn a bachelor's degree in engineering from the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In general, students 
spend the first three years at the liberal arts college and the final two 
years at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At the time 
of transfer, students must meet competitive transfer admission re- 
quirements and must meet certain residency requirements to partici- 
pate in this program. 

The five-year program encourages a student to develop a broad 
understanding of the social sciences and humanities while striving for 
excellence in technical studies. These affiliations have the added 
benefit of allowing students to take preengineering studies at liberal 
arts schools. Students interested in this dual degree program should 
meet with advisers from both schools to develop an individual plan of 
study.

to students in all curricula in the college. A student in the program 
alternates periods of attendance at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign with periods of employment in industry or government, 
The employment, which is an essential element in the education 
process, is with the same company each work period and is related 
the student's field of study. The assignment increases in difficulty and 
responsibility with each succeeding period off campus 

Students who wish to participate should apply at the Cooperative 
Engineering Education Office. Job fairs, referrals, and on-campus 
interviews provide employment opportunities. When accepted for 
employment, the student enrolls in the Cooperative Education Pro- 
gram, which retains student status during the employment period. 
Typical schedules and participating employees are shown in a bro-

fax (21") 244-4456; em.nl dickc@uiuc.edu. 

Sophomores, advanced undergr.u1n.ites, and community college 
transfer students are eligible for the program. Advanced students will 
still require Bve years to complete the program, but they will have 
fewer off-campus assignments. 

Students enrolled in the cooperative education program are regis- 
tered in the University and are considered to be full-time students for 
the entire Bve years required by the program. Entries indicating 
participation in the program are entered on the student's official 
transcript. Upon successful completion of the program, the student is 
awarded a certificate signed by the dean of the college and the off- 
campus coordinator and receives the regular diploma awarded for 
completing the degree requirements. 

THESIS 

With the approval of the department concerned, a senior of high 
standing in any curriculum may substitute, for one or more technical 
courses, an investigation of a special subject and write a thesis. 

CURRICULUM MODIFICATION 

A student interested in modifying his or her curriculum may do so by 
checking with his or her department and adviser to determine the 
petition procedure for making a curriculum modification. 

SPECIAL CURRICULA 

Students of high scholastic achievement, with exceptional aptitudes 

and interests in special fields of engineering and their application, 

may be permitted to vary the course content of the standard curricula 

to emphasize some phases not included or not encompassed by the 

usual course substitution and selection of electives. These unwritten 

curricula, however, must include all of the fundamental courses of the 

standard curricula, the variations being made mainly in the so-called 

applicatory portions of the standard curricula of the college. The 

program of study of each student permitted to take such a special 

curriculum must be approved by a committee of the college, in 

i consultation with the head of the department in which the student is 

! registered and with a faculty member of the college. This faculty 

| member automatically becomes the student's adviser in charge of 

| registration and other matters pertaining to the approved program. 

ADVANCED ROTC TRAINING COMBINED WITH 
ENGINEERING 

A student in the College of Engineering may elect to participate in the 
Reserve Officers' Training Corps Program and earn a commission in 
the U.S. Army Reserve, Air Force Reserve, or Naval Reserve. A 
commission is awarded simultaneously with the awarding of the 
bachelor of science degree in an engineering field. Participation in 
these programs is limited to students who apply to and are selected by 
the army, air force, and navy units at the University. Monthly stipends 
are paid to those selected for advanced military training. 

These programs require from one to three summer camps or 
cruises and the earning of specified numbers of credits in advanced 
military courses. Credits earned appear in all academic averages 
computed by the College of Engineering. Basic military courses (100- 
level) do not count toward graduation. A maximum of 6 hours of 200- 
level military science courses may be used as free electives. A student 
should plan on taking nine semesters to obtain both a bachelor's 
degree in engineering and a commission in the ROTC program. For 
further information, write directly to the professor of military science, 
aerospace studies, or naval science (see the universitywide Programs 
of Study catalog). 

Minors 



BIOENGINEERING MINOR 

Bioengineering is a broad, interdisciplinary field that brings together 
engineering, biology, and medicine to create new techniques, devices, 
and understanding of living systems to improve the quality of human 
life. Its practice ranges from the fundamental study of the behavior of 
biological materials at the molecular level to the design of medical 
devices to help the disabled . For engineering majors, there is a Bioengi- 
neering Minor; for biology majors there is a Bioengineering Option in 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 



Any of the existing engineering curricula can provide a good 
foundation for work in bioengineering. However, the engineering 
undergraduate needs additional education in the biologically ori- 
ented sciences to obtain a strong background for bioengineering. With 
such a background, the student should be able to progress rapidly on 
the graduate level in any branch of bioengineering. In industry, the 
graduate will be competent to handle engineering tasks related to 
biology. 

Students may fulfill the requirements for a minor in bioengineer- 
ing by completing the Bioengineering Core (A or B) and one of the 
course sequences in the following areas of specialization: biomedical 
engineering, biomolecular engineering, bioprocess engineering, and 
cell and tissue engineering. Depending on the area of specialization, 
18 to 23 hours are required. To obtain recognition for the bioengineer- 
ing minor, students must register in the Office of the Associate Dean 
for Academic Studies, 206 Engineering Hall.

FOOD AND BIOPROCESS ENGINEERING MINOR 

The food processing industry is the largest manufacturing industry in 
the United States and in the world. Nearly all food products require 
some preservation, processing, storage, and shipping. Preservation 
and processing techniques for foods, pharmaceuticals, and related 
products are becoming increasingly scrutinized to insure safety of the 
products and to increase productivity of the processes. 

Technical developments in the food, pharmaceutical, and related 
processing industries have created a need for professionals with 
training in food and bioprocess engineering. The demand for engi- 
neers with specialized training is increasing as processing techniques 
become more sophisticated and as companies improve their facilities. 

Engineering students interested in developing a background in 
food or bioprocess engineering may pursue a structured program of 
study that will lead to a bachelor's degree in an engineering discipline 
and a minor in food and bioprocess engineering at graduation. This 
program is intended for engineering students in all major disciplines. 
In most cases, courses from the minor can be applied as electives in the 
student's major. 

To receive a minor in food and bioprocessing engineering, a 
student must complete the following requirements: 

a. Twelve semester credit hours of required courses. (See Required 
Courses below.) 

b. Four semester credit hours of elective courses. (See Elective 
Courses below.) 

c. An internship at a food, pharmaceutical, or related processing 
company. (See Internship below.) 

d. A bachelor of science degree in the student's chosen field of 
engineering study.

FSHN 260— Raw Materials for Processing 

Other courses, subject to approval 

INTERNSHIP 

An internship with a food, pharmaceutical, or related processing 
company is required (ENG 210). It is expected that all students making 
satisfactory progress in the minor will have opportunity for employ- 
ment. Assignments will be determined by interviews and contacts 
with company representatives, and students will compete with others 
in the program for specific positions. Each student is required to write 
a paper that summarizes the internship. (Under certain conditions this 
requirement may be replaced by an additional three semester credit 
hours of course work.)

MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING MINOR 

Recent national attention on quality and productivity improvements 
in the manufacturing sector has led to a resurgence of emphasis and 
ai tivity in manufacturing engineering. The demand is increasing for 
engineers who will be qualified to design and operate the factories of 
the future. This field requires the integration of information technol- 
ogy, materials, and machines. It is believed that no single engineering 



COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING 



discipline can supplj the t\ pe ol engineer needed for system integra- 
tion I he option in manufacturing engineering provides an opportu- 
nity to engineering students to loam a common language of manufac- 
turing systems engineering. 

Ihis program is intended tor engineering students in all major 
disciplines who are interested in manufacturing engineering. The 
option in manufacturing engineering requires a total of 18 semester 
hours oi course w ork Only a small number of these courses may be 
above and beyond the requirements ot the student's regular curricu- 
lum, particularly it the student can make use of technical elective or 
similarly designated hours.

9 Level 3* courses. In order that the option have some 

coherence, the three courses must be selected from specified 
groups of courses related to the Level 2 courses. 

Courses within a given discipline that are required for completion 
of the bachelor's degree in that discipline may not be used by students 
in that discipline to satisfy the Level 3 course requirements of the 
option. 

It is recommended that one of the Level 3 courses be an indepen- 
dent study project course dealing with an open-ended manufacturing 
design problem. Students enrolled in the project course will apply 
engineering principles and techniques learned from manufacturing- 
related courses and topics covered in their major disciplines in the 
formulation, analysis, and solution of manufacturing design prob- 
lems. 



'Level 3 Courses: Each Level 2 course is supported by approximately twenty to thirty 
Level 3 courses that now exist within the course structures of the various engineering 
departments. These courses provide students with the opportunity to specialize in one 
or more aspects of manufacturing engineering. 

The course of study for a manufacturing option thus provides a 
student with a flexible program that can be tailored to suit the area of 
interest and the major engineering discipline in which the student is 
enrolled. To foster an interdisciplinary learning environment, a set of 
laboratories has also been developed. 

The director of the program is Professor Shiv G. Kapoor, Depart- 
ment of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (telephone 217- 333- 
3432). Additional information can be obtained from him or at the 
Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Programs, 206 Engineering 
Hall. 

POLYMER SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING MINOR 

Polymer science and engineering is a broad, interdisciplinary field 
that brings together various aspects of chemistry, physics, and engi- 
neering for the understanding, development, and application of the 
materials science of polymers. Many of the existing engineering 
curricula provide a good foundation for work in polymer science and 
engineering. However, the undergraduate student needs additional 
courses specifically dealing with the science and engineering of large 
molecules. With such a background, the student should be able to 
progress rapidly in industry or at the graduate level. In addition to 
those students specifically desiring a career in polymers, this minor 
also can be va luable to students interested in the development, design, 
and application of materials in general. 

The courses listed below have been selected specifically to give an 
undergraduate student a strong background in polymer science and 
engineering. A minimum of eight courses is required, several of which 
the student would normally take to satisfy the requirements of the 
basic degree. To obtain recognition for the polymer science and 
engineering minor, students must register in the Office of the Associ- 
ate Dean for Academic Programs, 206 Engineering Hall. The student 
should also consult with Professor Phillip H. Geil, Department of 
Materials Science and Engineering, 211 Metallurgy and Mining Build- 
ing; 217-333-0149, geil@uiuc.edu, when considering the option and 
deciding on a program.

MINOR IN TECHNOLOGY AND MANAGEMENT 

Successful management of technology-driven businesses today re- 
quires that employees work effectively in interdisciplinary teams. 
Team-based project management requires that each member of the 
team contribute not only in his or her own area of expertise but in other 
aspects of the project as well. The better equipped a new employee is 
to reach this level of competency quickly, the more valuable will be his 
or her contributions. Moreover, an employee having such compe- 
tency will be better prepared to assume positions of increased respon- 
sibility and challenge. 

Through the Minor in Technology and Management, undergradu- 
ate students in the College of Commerce and Business Administration 
along with students from the College of Engineering are enabled to 
acquire a thorough foundation in their major course of study and a 
comprehensive understanding of the fundamental elements of a cross 
discipline. The course of study leading to a minor in technology and 
management is comprised of three focus areas.

International Opportunities 

INTERNATIONAL MINOR IN ENGINEERING 

Many College of Engineering graduates will be involved in interna- 
tional activities during their professional careers. In anticipation of 
such involvement, the college offers an opportunity for students to 
complete an international minor as part of any engineering degree 
program. More than 95 percent of the engineering students have had 
language training, and this program allows them to continue their 
studies in related areas. All international minor requirements must be 
satisfied before graduation. To complete the international minor, the 
student must: 

— complete all degree requirements in the student's selected engi- 
neering discipline; 

— complete foreign language studies in a language of the student's 
choice of geographical area (proficiency level will vary with the 
geographical area selected); 

— complete a minimum of 21 hours of cultural and language studies 
related to the geographical area of concentration; 9 hours must be 
other than language credit and include at least one 300-level course. 
These courses can be used as campus and college general education 
requirements. 

— complete a minimum six-week residence in the chosen country or 
geographic area, whether it be for work or study. 

The student will be expected to select a specific geographical area 
for concentration, which will be identified in the designation of the 
minor; for example International Minor — Latin American studies. 
Course work selected for the minor must be approved by the Interna- 
tional Programs in Engineering Office; a list of suggested courses is 
available. 

International Programs in Engineering sponsors academic year, 
semester, and summer programs, described below, that include lan- 
guage and cultural courses and satisfy the residency requirement. 
With sufficient foreign language background before entering engi- 
neering, a student will normally be able to complete the degree in four 
years. Those not having this background, or taking a year of study in 
a foreign institution, may take four and one-half to five years to 
complete their degrees. 

INTERNATIONAL ENGINEERING FELLOWSHIP 

An alumnus of the College of Engineering, Armin Elmendorf, estab- 
lished a fund to encourage engineering students to seek an under- 
standing of the responsibilities of world citizenship. Engineering 
students traveling abroad as part of the educational program spon- 
sored by the college are eligible to receive a fellowship and to apply for 
other financial aid. Fellowship funds have certain requirements for 
qualification. Further information about these travel awards may be 
obtained from the International Programs in Engineering Office. 

ON-THE-JOB TRAINING IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES 

The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Tech- 
nical Experience (IAESTE) is a private, nonprofit organization that 
enables students of engineering, architecture, and the sciences to 
obtain on-the-job training in foreign countries. Any student, under- 
graduate or graduate, who is enrolled in good standing at the Univer- 
sity and who has completed at least the sophomore year of study may 
apply. Generally, the maintenance allowance is adequate to cover 
while in training but does not cover transportation 
co ts l urther information about these opportunities may be obtained 
from the College of Engineering. 

EXCHANGE SCHOLARSHIPS AT MUNICH AND DARMSTADT, 

GERMANY 

I in- < ollegeoi l rtgineering has exi hangesi holarships with theTech- 

n Mut in L,f ,i -rm. in y, and the Darmstadt Univi ii- 
inology in Darmstadt, Germany. Under the terms of I he agree- 



ment, two University of Illinois students are given tuition scholar- 
ships at the Technical University in Munich and five are given schol- 
arships at the Darmstadt University of Technology. Stipends to cover 
living expenses for the year are included in the Munich program. 
Students selected by the Technical University in Munich and by the 
Darmstadt University of Technology receive tuition scholarships at 
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Equivalent cash 
stipends are awarded to the Munich students. Students are respon- 
sible for their own transportation expenses. 

To be eligible for study at the Technical University in Munich, a 
student should be enrolled in one of the following curricula: civil and 
environmental engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engi- 
neering, materials science, mechanical engineering, nuclear engineer- 
ing, engineering physics. To be eligible for study at the Darmstadt 
University of Technology, a student should be enrolled in one of the 
following curricula: civil and environmental engineering, chemical 
engineering, mechanical engineering, physics. Normally, credit earned 
at these institutions can be transferred and used in the student's 
curriculum at Urbana-Champaign. 

To participate in one of the programs, a student must have com- 
pleted GER 104 or the equivalent (additional courses in German are 
recommended) and finished his or her sophomore studies in engi- 
neering at the Urbana-Champaign campus. In addition, the student 
must be an outstanding scholar who will be an excellent representa- 
tive of the University of Illinois and must be a U.S. citizen. 

The programs are under the general administration of the Engi- 
neering College Honors Council, although a recipient need not be an 
honors student if he or she has an outstanding undergraduate record. 
Students can earn credit towards their engineering degree while 
participating in these programs. 

FRENCH EDUCATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM 

College of Engineering students may participate in the French ex- 
change programs at the following institutions: Institut National 
Polytechnique de Lorraine (INPL), Nancy, and Universite de 
Technologie de Compiegne, Compiegne. Each student should be a 
junior and should have credit for FR 104 or the equivalent, although 
additional courses in French are recommended. One- or two-semester 
programs are available, with tuition and certain academic-related 
expenses provided. 

The Trois Ecoles program offers engineering students a chance to 
study at one of Paris's Grandes Ecoles: Telecommunications 
(TELECOM), Electricite (SUPELEC), or Techniques Avancees (ENST). 
These institutions emphasize electrical and computer engineering, 
but courses are also offered in chemical, industrial, and mechanical 
engineering and computer sciences. Students with junior-or senior- 
level standing and advanced French-language skills can select the 
institution that specializes in an area of interest. These programs offer 
students the opportunity to live among French students, experience 
European culture, and improve language skills for a semester or 
academic year. Students can earn credit towards their engineering 
degree while participating in these programs. 

SUMMER EXCHANGE PROGRAMS 

To introduce College of Engineering students to other cultures and 
languages, programs were developed with institutions in Argentina, 
Brazil, Chile, China, France, Germany, Japan, Jordan, Mexico, and 
Russia. These opportunities are designed mainly to enable students to 
learn about the people of these countries during a six- to eight-week 
period, to study the language, and to work in a limited way with 
technology, either through industry or working in a lab or with a 
professor in the host university. Travel to interesting places is in- 
cluded in these programs. Although no previous language instruction 
is required to apply for some of these programs, a credit course in the 
appropriate language is required in the spring semester before depar- 
ture. Students earn 6-8 hours of credit that can be used towards their 
social sciences and humanities requirements for the college and 
towards the International Minor in Engineering, if enrolled. 

OTHER STUDY ABROAD EXCHANGE PROGRAMS 

Many exchange programs are available for engineering students on 
this campus with educational institutions throughout the world. The 
( ( il lege of Engineering works closely with the Study Abroad ( )1 1 ice in 
developing programs of study in which course credits can be trans- 
ferred to this campus. Engineering students have participated in 
pri igrams in Australia, Great Britain, Spain, and other countries and 
have received credit for these programs. The College of Engineering 



COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING 



has preapproved most ol these programs for engineering students. 
Further information about those and other programs may bo obtained

Honors Programs 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

1 lonors awarded at graduation to superior students are designated on 
the diploma as honors, high honors, or highest honors. A student 
receives honors with a cumulath e I rriversity of Illinois grade point 
a\ erage ol at least 3.5, and high honors with at least a 3.8 grade point 
average at graduation ( A = 4.0). Highest honors may be awarded to 
any student eligible tor high honors upon recommendation of his or 
her department The criteria used by departments in selecting indi- 
viduals for highest honors recognition include outstanding perfor- 
mance in course work and in supplementary activities of an academic 
or professional nature. Ordinarily, such a citation requires completion 
of an undergraduate thesis or a special project of superior quality. 

TAU BETA PI 

Tau Beta Pi is a national engineering honor society that recognizes 
students, alumni, and engineers for outstanding academic achieve- 
ments and exemplary character. The Alpha chapter at the University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was founded in 1897 and is the fifth 
oldest chapter. In addition to gaining scholastic recognition, members 
participate in a range of activities that serve the chapter, the College of 
Engineering, and the community. The scholastic requirement for 
membership in Tau Beta Pi is that juniors must be in the upper one- 
eighth of their graduating class and seniors must be in the upper one- 
fifth of their graduating class. 

EDMUND J. JAMES SCHOLARS 

The honors program in engineering is part of the University's James 
Scholar program, which was established to recognize and develop the 
talents of academically outstanding students. Engineering students in 
this program are known as "James Scholars in Engineering." Each is 
assigned to an honors adviser and receives special consideration in the 
selection of a course program to meet specific needs. Students may 
apply for the program during summer advance enrollment or at the 
beginning of any semester. 

Freshmen in the College of Engineering are eligible to enter the 
program with an ACT composite score of 33 or higher or equivalent 
SAT score. Continuation in the program or joining as an upperclass 
student requires a minimum 3.3 GPA (3.5 for students in electrical and 
computer engineering) and the development and approval of an 
honors contract, which is a coherent plan of special academic work. 
Details are available from the Office of the Associate Dean for Aca- 
demic Programs. 

Good standing in the James Scholar program at graduation re- 
quires completion of the honors contract.

HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES ELECTIVES 

Eighteen hours of humanities and social sciences are required (in 
addition to rhetoric); these are normally chosen to also satisfy the 
campus general education requirements in this area. Six hours of 
social sciences and six hours of humanities must be taken for grade. 
The remaining six hours of social sciences or humanities may be taken 
credit/no credit. Note: campus general education requirements must 
be taken for credit. 

Information about general education requirements is available in 
the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic Programs and from the 
Worldwide Web site http://www.provost.uiuc.edu/gened. 

Students may obtain credit from different academic sources, i.e., 
residential instruction, College-Level Examination Program tests, 
advanced placement tests, and transfer credits. Credit in any specific 
subject may be used toward degree requirements only once. Because 
of the variety of sources available for social sciences and humanities 
electives, students may receive duplicate credit in specific courses, 



such as American history. Students should be aware that such dupli- 
cation cannot be used toward degree requirements. 

TECHNICAL ELECTIVES 

Each engineering curriculum offers some elective opportunities, which 
may be specified as technical or nontechnical. All technical elective 
courses must be selected in accordance with departmental require- 
ments. 

Technical electives generally include 200- and 300-level courses in 
engineering, mathematics, and the natural sciences. 

FREE ELECTIVES 

These electives are selected at the prerogative of the student except as 
noted below. 

Credit will not be allowed for courses of a remedial nature, such as 
mathematics below analytic geometry or basic military training. No 
more than 3 semester hours of physical education course work (basic 
level, i.e., activity courses) may be used as free electives nor may they 
be applied toward degree requirements. No more than 4 hours of 
religious foundation courses or 6 hours of advanced military science 
courses may be used as free electives. 

Total transfer credit in required basic courses in mathematics 
(through integral calculus), physics, rhetoric, freshman chemistry, 
computer science, and engineering graphics may be used for free 
electives only if the credit covers topics beyond those in equivalent 
courses at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Further 
restrictions on the acceptance of transfer credit for free electives may 
be imposed by the departments with the approval of the associate 
dean for academic programs. 

CREDIT-NO CREDIT OPTION 

The credit-no credit grade option is available for students who want 
to explore areas of academic interest that they might otherwise avoid 
for fear of poor grades. All students considering this option are 
cautioned that many graduate and professional schools consider 
applicants whose transcripts bear a significant number of nongrade 
symbols less favorably than those whose transcripts contain none or 
very few. Conditions under which students may take courses on a 
credit-no credit basis are outlined in the booklet Code on Campus Affairs 
and Handbook of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students, which 
is distributed to all students. Required courses in the College of 
Engineering may not be taken on this basis.

SPECIALIZATION IN FOOD AND BIOPROCESS ENGINEERING 

Food and bioprocess engineering is the application of engineering 
principles to produce, preserve, process, package, and distribute 
foods. Food and bioprocess engineers develop, design, and construct 
new machinery, processes, and plants; they develop and test new 
products; they preserve and distribute foods; and they manage envi- 
ronmental factors, waste products, and energy. Food and bioprocess 
engineers participate in nearly every phase of food processing. Gradu- 
ates are prepared for positions in a variety of industries, including 
food, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries. Job opportuni- 
ties also exist with the government, universities, and consulting firms. 
Career possibilities include research and development; project, pro- 
cess, and plant engineering, which can include design, optimization, 
and construction; technical sales and service; and supervision and 
management. Those who continue their education in graduate school 
will have a strong background for further study in the sciences or 
engineering.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering 

The mission of the Department of Chemical Engineering is to provide 
a broad-based education in chemical engineering and related fields 
for highly qualified undergraduates; to accomplish, in conjunction 
with a program of graduate education, research recognized by peers 
as among the most significant in the world; and to serve society 
through chemical engineering leadership in matters of national policy, 
education, standards, and professionalism. 

The program's educational objectives are based on the needs of the 
constituents: students and their families, faculty, industry, and gradu- 
ate schools where our students advance upon graduation, alumni, the 
State of Illinois, and the nation. These objectives are consistent with 
I ngiuvring Criteria 2()()()(EC2K) of the Accreditation Board for Engi- 
neering and Technology (ABET). To prepare students to a< hie\ e the 
olijei lives, a set of program on homes has been adopted that is parallel 



COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING 



to both the ABE I (EC2K) Criterion 3 list of outcomes and those listed 
for the College ot 1 ngineering 

The chemical engineering curriculum is designed to prepare stu- 
dents tor careers in the chemical, food, energy, pharmaceutical, semi- 
conductor processing, personal care, fiber, and materials industries 
where chemical processes are coupled with heat, mass, and momen- 
tum transfer The curriculum is arranged in a flexible manner to 
permit students to use their electh e hours and to substitute courses to 
arrange programs incorporating various specific areas of chemical 
engineering and interdisciplinary areas. For example, sequences can 
be set up in conjunction with the student's adviser to emphasize 
environmental engineering, bioengineering, computer science, or 
food science. It will be advantageous to the student to plan course 
sequences with an adviser as early as possbile in the student's aca- 
demic career. 

The program emphasizes fundamentals required to develop mod- 
els for the design, control, and operation of chemical processes. 
Students entering without adequate preparation in mathematics and 
chemistry may find it difficult to complete the chemical engineering 
curriculum in four years. A typical program, including all required 
courses and electives, is shown below. The order in which various 
courses are taken can be varied to suit an individual student's needs. 
However, care must be exercised in scheduling to ensure that neces- 
sary course prerequisites are met. 

Instruction is given using a combination of lecture, discussion, 
laboratory, and project methodologies of the highest quality. The 
large number of laboratory courses and superb access to advanced 
computer facilities provide excellent practical experience in the field. 
The program integrates engineering design, communication, com- 
puter usage, and teamwork throughout all required courses starting 
with the introductory courses of The Chemical Engineering Profes- 
sion (ChE 161) and Introduction to Chemical Engineering (ChE 261) 
and continuing into advanced courses of Chemical Engineering Ther- 
modynamics (ChE 370), Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer (ChE 
371), Mass Transfer Operations (ChE 373), Chemical Engineering 
Laboratory (ChE 374), Synthesis and Design of Chemical systems 
i ChE 377), Chemical Rate and Reactor Design (ChE 381), and Chemi- 
cal Process Control and Dynamics (ChE 389). Advanced concepts of 
design and process integration can be gained in technical elective 
courses. 

Students in the curriculum of chemical engineering must maintain 
a 2.5 general average, excluding military training, to be accepted by 
the department with junior- and senior-level standing. 

For information regarding the cooperative education program 
and internships in the School of Chemical Sciences, see the chemistry 
major in the Science and Letters curriculum. 

General education: All campus general education requirements 
must be satisfied. 

Minimum hours required for graduation: 129 hours, including 16 
hours of approved general education electives. These electives must 
include at least six hours in social perspectives or behavioral sciences 
and at least six hours in literature and the arts or historical and 
philosophical perspectives. Students must satisfy the distribution 
requirements in Western and non- Western cultures. One and one-half 
years of college credit in one foreign language is required. Two years 
of high school credit in one foreign language is equivalent to one year 
of college credit. 

Departmental distinction: A student is recommended for depart- 
mental distinction on the basis of grade point average and work 
presented in CH E 292 — Senior Thesis.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering 

Civil engineering is a profession that applies the basic principles of 
science in conjunction with mathematical and computational tools to 
solve problems associated with developing and sustaining civilized 
life on our planet. Civil engineering is one of the broader of the 
engineering disciplines both in terms of the range of problems that fall 
within its purview and in the range of knowledge required to solve 
those problems. Civil engineering works are generally one-of-a-kind 
projects; they are often grand in scale; and they usually require 
cooperation among professionals of many different disciplines. The 
completion of a civil engineering project involves the solution of 
technical problems in which uncertainty of information and myriad 
non-technical factors often play a significant role. Some of the most 
common examples of civil engineering works include bridges, build- 
ings, dams, airports, highways, tunnels, and water distribution sys- 
tems. Civil engineers are concerned with flood control, landslides, air 
and water pollution, and the design of facilities to withstand earth- 
quakes and other natural hazards. 

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES AND OUTCOMES 

The career paths available to the civil engineer are many and varied 
and can involve a wide range of activities, tools, situations, clients, and 
venues — from conceptual design of facilities that do not yet exist to 
forensic study of facilities that have failed to performed as expected, 
from advanced simulation of complex systems to the management of 
people and projects, from private consulting to public service. In 
addition to the educational objectives described in the College of 
Engineering introductory section, the civil engineer must be as well 
prepared for a career that traverses this considerable professional 
breadth as for a career focussed on a single professional activity. The 
civil engineering curriculum is designed specifically to meet this 
educational challenge by emphasizing fundamental knowledge, trans- 
ferable skills, and lifelong learning. 

The civil engineering program comprises seven main disciplines: 
construction engineering and management, construction materials 
engineering, environmental engineering, geotechnical engineering, 
environmental hydrology and hydraulics, structural engineering, 
and transportation engineering. Although each discipline has its own 
special body of knowledge and engineering tools, they all rely on the 
same fundamental core principles. Civil engineering projects often 
draw expertise from many of these disciplines. 

The civil engineering curriculum is designed to develop engineers 
who have a strong background in mathematics and science, engineers 
who are articulate, and engineers who understand the nature of their 
special role in society and the impact of their work on the progress of 
civilization. The curriculum is designed to guarantee a certainbreadth 
of knowledge of the civil engineering disciplines through a set of core 
courses and to ensure depth and focus in certain disciplines through 
primary and secondary areas of specialization. The curriculum devel- 
ops the basic engineering tools necessary to solve problems in the field 
of civil engineering. 

PROGRAM REVIEW AND APPROVAL 

Each student's academic program is developed in close consultation 
with the student's faculty advisor to be in compliance with the general 
requirements of this curriculum and in consonance with the elaborat- 
ing guide -In ii", < if the department. To qualify for the degree of Bachelor 
of Science in Civil Engineering, each student's academic program plan 
must be reviewed by a standing committee of the faculty (the Program 
Ki •. iew < ommittee) and approved by the Associate Head of Civil and 
I n in.niiMiit.il I ngineering in charge of undergraduate programs,

MONITORING AND ASSESSMENT OF EDUCATIONAL 
OUTCOMES 

The faculty advisor plays an important role in the development of a 
student's program of study, in monitoring the progress of the student, 
and in giving general advice on the role of the program in career 
development. The advising system in the Department of Civil and 
Environmental Engineering helps to assure that the educational objec- 
tives of the program are met to the best of the ability of each student. 
The department Undergraduate Advisor and the Associate Head of 
Civil and Environmental Engineering in charge of undergraduate 
programs provide assistance and information to faculty advisors and 
provide additional advising support for students.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES 

The Computer Engineering (CompE) curriculum is administered by 
the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). The 
educational objectives of the department's programs are based on the 
mission of the department and the perceived needs of the constituents 
and are consistent with Engineering Criteria 2000 (EC2K) of the 
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



mission statement has a preamble followed by declarations of four 
interconnected commitments: to students, to faculty, to alumni, and to 
the State of Illinois, with the understanding that the latter two include 
industry. There are four program educational objectives for the CompE 
program: 

Depth. To provide students with an understanding of the funda- 
mental knowledge prerequisite for the practice of or for advanced 
study in computer engineering, including its scientific principles, 
rigorous analysis, and creative design. 

Breadth. To provide students with the broad education, including 
knowledge of important current issues in engineering with emphasis 
on computer engineering, necessary for productive careers in the 
public or private sectors or for the pursuit of graduate education. 

Professionalism. To develop skills for clear communication and 
responsible teamwork and to inculcate professional attitudes and 
ethics, so that students are prepared for the complex modern work 
environment and for lifelong learning. 

Learning Environment. To provide an environment that enables 
students to pursue their goals in an innovative program that is 
rigorous and challenging, open and supportive. 

OUTCOMES 

To prepare the student for the program educational objectives to be 
achieved, a set of program outcomes — statements that describe what 
students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of 
graduation — have been adopted. These outcomes, which parallel the 
ABET EC2K Criterion 3 list of outcomes (see description under 
College of Engineering) and the applicable Program Criteria, are: 

• Ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineer- 
ing 

• Ability to design and conduct experiments as well as analyze and 
interpret data 

• Ability to design a system to meet desired needs 

• Ability to function on multidisciplinary teams 

• Ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems 

• Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility 

• Ability to communicate effectively 

• Broad education necessary to understand impact of engineering 
solutions in a global /societal context 

• Recognition of the need for and ability to engage in lifelong learning 

• Knowledge of contemporary issues 

• Ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools 
necessary for engineering practice 

• Knowledge of probability and statistics, including applications to 
computer engineering 

• Knowledge of mathematics, and basic and engineering sciences, 
necessary to carry out analysis and design appropriate to computer 
engineering 

• Knowledge of discrete mathematics. 

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FIRST-YEAR ECE EXPERIENCE 

First-year students take ECE 110, Introduction to Electrical and Com- 
puter Engineering, a four-credit-hour class combining theory, labora- 
tory measurement, and design. Not only do beginning students get a 
substantive course in their major, they also gain a better appreciation 
for the basic science and mathematics courses that are taken during 
the first two years of study. Students gain first-hand experience in the 
activities of a professional computer engineer and are better able to 
make the important decision as to whether they have chosen the major 
best suited to them. 

INTELLECTUAL CONTENT OF THE COMPUTER 
ENGINEERING CURRICULUM 

Student involvement in the computer engineering discipline increases 
during each year of the program . Most of the core computer engineer- 
i rses are taken in the fourth and fifth semesters. During the last 
three semester,, the .Indent i houses ekvtives lo define a curriculum 
meeting specific educational and career goals. 

The computer engineering core curriculum focuses on fundamen- 
tal computer engineering knowledge: circuits (ECE 110), systems 
(ECE 210), electromagnetics (ECE 229), computer engineering (ECE 
249, ECE 290, ECE 291, ECE 312), solid state electronics (ECE 340), and 
computer science (C S 125, C S 225). The rich set of ECE elective courses 
permits students to concentrate in any subdiscipline of computer 
engineering including: computer systems, electronic circuits, soft- 
orks, - • r title i.ii intelligent e and robotii s, 
ipplii ation 



METHODS OF INSTRUCTION AND DESIGN EXPERIENCE 

Instruction is given using a combination of lecture, discussion, labo- 
ratory, and project methodologies of the highest quality. The large 
number of laboratory courses and superb access to advanced com- 
puter facilities provide excellent practical experience in the field. 
Engineering design, communication, and teamwork are integrated 
throughout the curriculum, including the beginning required courses, 
Introduction to Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE 110) and 
Introduction to Computer Engineering (ECE 290), as well as Com- 
puter Engineering II (ECE 291 ), Digital Systems Laboratory (ECE 249), 
and Computer Organization and Design (ECE 312), which are taken 
in the third year. Further design experiences occur in the elective 



HONORS ACTIVITY 

Students wishing to do honors work are encouraged to apply to the 
James Scholar Program administered jointly by the College of Engi- 
neering and the ECE Department. In consultation with departmental 
honors advisers, students create and carry out honors activity con- 
tracts. They must also participate in the ECE Honors Seminar and are 
encouraged to participate in the yearly Undergraduate Honors Sym- 
posium. The department offers thesis courses and project opportuni- 
ties for students wishing to graduate with Highest Honors. 

GRADE POINT AVERAGE REQUIREMENTS 

A student must have a grade point average of at least 2.0 (A=4.0) in 
ECE courses in order to remain in good standing and to graduate. To 
qualify for registration for the ECE courses shown in the third year of 
the curriculum, a student must have completed, with a combined 2.25 
grade point average, the mathematics, physics, computer science, and 
electrical and computer engineering courses shown in the first two 
years.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Computer Science 

This curriculum is offered by the Department of Computer Science for 
students seeking a broad and deep knowledge of the theory, design, 
and application of digital computers and information processing 
techniques. The first two years are spent on basic work in mathemat- 
ics, physics, and an introduction to the fundamental areas of computer 
science: computing, programming, the organization of digital ma- 
chines, hardware, numerical analysis, and theory of computation. The 
third year completes the work in basic computer science and requires 
electives to broaden the background of the student. During the fourth 
year, the student is encouraged to deepen his or her understanding of 
topics of particular interest and ability. In addition, each student is 
required to complete an "application sequence," which consists of a 
sequence of courses in an area of the student's interest outside com- 
puter science to which computers may be applied. 

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES AND OUTCOMES 

The Department of Computer Science strives to provide students with 
a broad knowledge of the fundamentals of computers and computa- 
tion and a deep knowledge of software systems construction. We feel 
that students should also gain a grounding in some area of application 
of computers, and a sense of the responsibilities and ethical demands 
of the computing professions. Considerable importance is placed on 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



keeping up-to-date both our courses and our lab equipment. A faculty 
consisting of top researchers ensures that courses are at once intellec- 
tually challenging, timely, and authoritative. 

Given these objectives, the department has adopted a set of educa- 
tional outcomes that we expect each student to have achieved by the 
time of graduation. Above all, students should leave our program 
with the fundamental knowledge and study skills that will enable 
them to be lifelong learners: in a field of constant growth and change, 
this is essential. We expect graduates to be able to think clearly and 
precisely about computational problems and to be able to apply their 
knowledge of mathematics, computer engineering, software engi- 
neering, and application areas to the solution of these problems. 
Students should learn how to work productively in a team environ- 
ment, and should possess excellent written and oral communication 
skills. Finally, they should gain a general knowledge of contemporary 
issues in our society and should understand the role of the computer 
professional and the importance of professional integrity and ethics. 
We continually monitor our success in achieving these desired educa- 
tional outcomes through various methods and seek ways to improve 
our educational programs 

We believe that these objectives and outcomes are consistent with 
the requirements of the Criterion 2000 of the Computer Science 
Accreditation Board (CSAB). 

REVIEW OF ACADEMIC PROGRESS 

Each student's progress is reviewed after the student completes 30 
hours of technical (MATH, CS, ECE) courses; this will normally be at 
the end of the sophomore year, as shown in the schedule below. At that 
time, the student must have a combined grade point average in those 
courses of 2.25 (A=4.0) to qualify for registration in CS classes in the 
following semester. A student who does not qualify may transfer to 
another department or seek a waiver of the requirement from the 
Director of Undergraduate Programs in CS. 

In order to graduate or continue in the computer science curricu- 
lum, a student must have a 2.0 technical grade point average including 
the following courses: 

All computer science courses 

ECE 205, 206 

MATH 120, 130, and 242 or 243; or MATH 135 and 245 

MATH 225 or 315 

MATH 285 or 341 

MATH 361 /STAT 351 or MATH 363/STAT 310 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES 

The Electrical Engineering (EE) curriculum is administered by the 
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE). The edu- 
cational objectives of the department's programs are based on the 
mission of the department and the perceived needs of the constituents 
and are consistent with the Engineering Criteria 2000 (EC2K) of the 
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The 
mission statement has a preamble followed by declarations of four 
interconnected commitments: to students, to faculty, to alumni, and to 
the State of Illinois, with the understanding that the latter two include 
industry. There are four program educational objectives for the EE 
program: 

Depth. To provide students with an understanding of the funda- 
mental knowledge prerequisite for the practice of or for advanced 



study in electrical engineering, including its scientific principles, 
rigorous analysis, and creative design. 

Breadth. To provide students with the broad education, including 
knowledge of important current issues in engineering with emphasis 
on electrical engineering, necessary for productive careers in the 
public or private sectors or for the pursuit of graduate education. 

Professionalism. To develop skills for clear communication and 
responsible teamwork and to inculcate professional attitudes and 
ethics so that students are prepared for the complex modern work 
environment and for lifelong learning. 

Learning Environment. To provide an environment that enables 
students to pursue their goals in an innovative program that is 
rigorous and challenging, open and supportive. 

OUTCOMES 

To prepare the student for the program educational objectives to be 
achieved, a set of program outcomes, that is, statements that describe 
what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of 
graduation, have been adopted. These outcomes, which parallel the 
ABET EC2K Criterion 3 list of outcomes (see description under 
College of Engineering) and the applicable Program Criteria, are: 

• Ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineer- 
ing 

• Ability to design and conduct experiments as well as analyze and 
interpret data 

• Ability to design a system to meet desired needs 

• Ability to function on multidisciplinary teams 

• Ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems 

• Understanding of professional and ethical responsibility 

• Ability to communicate effectively 

• Broad education necessary to understand impact of engineering 
solutions in a global/societal context 

• Recognition of the need for and ability to engage in lifelong learning 

• Knowledge of contemporary issues 

• Ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools 
necessary for engineering practice 

• Knowledge of probability and statistics, including applications to 
electrical engineering 

• Knowledge of mathematics, and basic and engineering sciences, 
necessary to carry out analysis and design appropriate to electrical 
engineering 

• Knowledge of advanced mathematics. 

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FIRST-YEAR ECE EXPERIENCE 

First-year students take ECE 110 — Introduction to Electrical and 
Computer Engineering, a four-credit-hour class combining theory, 
laboratory measurement, and design. Not only do beginning students 
get a substantive course in their major, they also gain a better appre- 
ciation for the basic science and mathematics courses that are taken 
during the first two years of study. Students gain first-hand experi- 
ence in the activities of a professional electrical engineer and are better 
able to make the important decision as to whether they have chosen 
the major best suited to them. 

INTELLECTUAL CONTENT OF THE ELECTRICAL 
ENGINEERING CURRICULUM 

Student involvement in the electrical engineering discipline increases 
during each year of the program. Most of the core electrical engineer- 
ing courses are taken in the fourth and fifth semesters. During the last 
three semesters, the student chooses electives so as to define a curricu- 
lum to meet specific educational and career goals. 

The electrical engineering core curriculum focuses on fundamen- 
tal electrical engineering knowledge: circuits (ECE 1 10), systems (ECE 
210), electromagnetics (ECE 229), solid state electronics (ECE 340), 
computer engineering (ECE 290, ECE 249), computer science (C S 125), 
and design (ECE 345). The rich set of ECE elective courses permits 
students to study in any subdiscipline of electrical engineering includ- 
ing: acoustics, bioengineering, circuits, communications, control, 
electromagnetics, physical electronics, power, signal processing, and 
space science and remote sensing. 

METHODS OF INSTRUCTION AND DESIGN EXPERIENCE 

Instruction is given using a combination of lecture, discussion, labo- 
ratory, and project methodologies of the highest quality. The large 
number of laboratory courses and superb access to advanced com- 
puter facilities provide excellent practical experience in the field. 
Laboratory and design work are emphasized throughout the curricu- 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



lum beginning with Introduction to Electrical and Computer Engi- 
neering (ECE 110). The sophomore year includes design experience in 
Introduction to Computer Engineering (ECE 290) and the Digital 
Systems Laboratory (ECE 249). During the junior and senior years, 
students gain further design experience in elective courses, including 
at least two laboratory courses, in their chosen subdiscipline. In the 
Senior Design Project Laboratory (ECE 345), students learn to com- 
bine all phases of an engineering project including design, analysis, 
construction, teamwork and reporting. 

HONORS ACTIVITY 

Students wishing to do honors work are encouraged to apply to the 
James Scholar Program administered jointly by the College of Engi- 
neering and the ECE Department. In consultation with departmental 
honors advisers, students create and carry out honors activity con- 
tracts. They must also participate in the ECE Honors Seminar and are 
encouraged to participate in the yearly Undergraduate Honors Sym- 
posium. The department offers thesis courses and project opportuni- 
ties for students wishing to graduate with Highest Honors. 

GRADE POINT AVERAGE REQUIREMENTS 

A student must have a grade point average of at least 2.0 (A=4.0) in 
ECE courses in order to remain in good standing and to graduate. To 
qualify for registration for the ECE courses shown in the third year of 
the curriculum, a student must have completed, with a combined 2.25 
grade point average, the mathematics, physics, computer science, and 
electrical and computer engineering courses shown in the first two 
years.

CURRICULUM IN ENGINEERING MECHANICS 

This curriculum is intended primarily for students pursuing careers in 
research and development in mechanical, civil, aerospace, materials 
science, and related engineering fields. It also provides excellent 
preparation for graduate study in many different engineering disci- 
plines. 

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES 

The program derives its strength from rigorous treatments of statics, 
kinematics, dynamics, and the mechanics of solids and fluids. These 
topics form the basis of all the mechanical sciences and have wide 
applicability in modern engineering. Students in engineering me- 
chanics also develop a strong background in mathematics, physics, 
chemistry, and computer science while specializing in one of several 
secondary fields within mechanics, such as experimental mechanics. 
In addition to the educational objectives described for the College 
of Engineering, special emphasis is placed on advanced dynamics, 
continuum mechanics, and the rapidly emerging field of computa- 
tional mechanics. Laboratory experiments in solid and fluid mechan- 
ics complement an integrated design sequence, starting in the fresh- 
man year, that culminates in a team-based design project in one of the 
professional engineering disciplines, such as aerospace, civil, or me- 
chanical engineering. Students also have the opportunity for indepen- 
dent, creative work in a one-on-one or small group environment 
under the supervision of a faculty member. 

EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES 

Students completing the 131-hour program develop an ability not 
only to analyze problems involving statics, kinematics, dynamics, and 
the mechanics of solids and fluids but also to use an extensive array of 
mathematical concepts and computational tools. They learn how to 
set up and conduct laboratory experiments and, as a member of a 
design team, how to apply mechanics principles to the solution of new 
and challenging engineering problems. 

Upon graduation, students are prepared to enter traditional engi- 
neering fields, such as mechanical engineering, or to pursue opportu- 
nities in such emerging fields as energy development, materials 
engineering, space technology, micromechanicalelectrical systems 
(MEMS), and computer-based design. Graduate training leading to 
the master's and doctoral degree in mechanics or related fields is 
another option normally followed by about half the curriculum's 
graduates. 

Other educational outcomes of the program include those that are 
common to all the College of Engineering curricula. 

FURTHER INFORMATION 

The Department of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics administers 
the engineering mechanics program and cordially invites students to

SUBSTITUTIONS 

To add flexibility to the program and to accommodate particular 
interests, a student may petition the Department to substitute appro- 
priate courses, including 400-level courses if the student has the 
appropriate preparation, for any portion of the elective secondary- 
field courses. Petitions to substitute courses should be submitted 
through the student affairs coordinator and require approval by the 
student's adviser, the chief undergraduate adviser, and the associate 
head of the department. A list of substitutions that have been ap- 
proved is maintained by the student affairs coordinator. Without 
petition, a student may select any one course listed as required in 
one of the secondary field options to satisfy elective course credits 
in a chosen secondary field. 

SENIOR DESIGN ELECTIVES 

The senior design electives consist of 6 hours of engineering course 
work — 3 hours in an engineering capstone design course, such as A A 
E 240, AG E 336, CH E 377, CEE 320, CEE 353, CEE 365, C S 292, ECE 
345, G E 242, MATSE 322, M E 280, or NPRE 358, plus 3 hours in an 
engineering technical elective course that is directly related to the 
intended area of concentration in that design course. In most cases, the 
capstone design course is taken in the last semester of study. A faculty 
design sequence coordinator, named by the department head, must 
approve each student's senior design electives.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in General Engineering 

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES 

In concert with the overall mission of the College of Engineering (see 
the college introduction), the four-fold mission of the Department of 
General Engineering, inaugurated in 1921, is to: 

• prepare students with the innovative engineering, design, problem 
solving, and business skills needed to develop and bring to market 
competitive products and services for the benefit of society; 

• develop the character, self-reliance, leadership, and entrepreneurial 
skills of its students through a high degree of choice, involvement, and 
responsibility for their education; 

• engage in leading-edge, interdisciplinary research and service to 
industry, the state, and the country; and 

• provide high-quality state-of-the-art courses of service to the col- 
lege, the university, and the community at large. 

INTELLECTUAL CONTENT 

General Engineering is a comprehensive and interdisciplinary pro- 
gram in basic sciences, engineering sciences, and engineering design 
that emphasizes problem solving through real-world partnerships 
with industry and supplemented with the tools that a student needs 
to develop an understanding of the business environment faced by the 
practicing engineer. The program provides a broad background in 
mechanics and structures, control systems, and decision-making that 
supports a systems approach to engineering. Design experience is 
emphasized and integrated across the core. Engineering and business 
may be incorporated with elective courses in areas such as profit and 
value engineering, engineering economics, entrepreneurship, process 
control, leadership and life skills, and communication skills for a 
collaborative workplace. 

The senior design project is the capstone design experience for all 
General Engineering undergraduates. The department leads the field 
with project teams consistently winning national awards. Industry 
partners note that General Engineering students stand out for their 
global, team, and business orientation and their strong problem- 
solving and communication skills. Graduate and professional school 
officials note that General Engineering students are among the highest 
qualifying, best performing, and most sought-after graduates in the 
job market. 

CAREER FOCUS 

One of the most unique aspects of General Engineering is that it 
provides students with a virtually unlimited opportunity to achieve 
educational and career goals by selecting or customizing a technical or 
nontechnical secondary field. Secondary fields of concentration pur- 
sued by General Engineering students include diverse and exciting 
areas such as telecommunications, business systems integration and 
consulting, environmental quality, engineering marketing, nonde- 
structive testing and evaluation, cinematography, robotics, interna- 
tional business, vehicle dynamics, biomedical engineering, and prelaw. 
(See complete list presented further on.) Moreover, General Engineer- 
ing students may pursue all University of Illinois at Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus and college minors, as well as dual majors and dual 
degrees, with a minimum of extra course work by counting that work 
toward course credit: forasa <>ndary field of concentration.

SECONDARY FIELDS OF CONCENTRATION FOR THE 
UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM IN GENERAL ENGINEERING 

The secondary held requires a minimum of 12 hours of coursework. 
Secondary fields of concentration are of two types: preapproved and 
customized. Preapproved fields have designated titles and a specified 
list of courses, from which several may be selected. Approval for the 
substitution of a course for one on the specified list may be requested 
via a petition form submitted to the department. Customized second- 
ary- fields of concentration may be created to achieve goals in areas not 
provided by preapproved fields. To do this, a suitable title and all the 
courses must be petitioned for acceptance by the department. Petition 
approval is based on the merit of the secondary field and the coherence 
of the courses within it relative to the student's goals. 

Pursuit of campus or college minors or completion of James 
Scholar contracts may be integrated with customized secondary fields 
of concentration in the General Engineering curriculum. Courses 
taken mav be applied to both the minor or contract and to the 
secondary field. This may also be done for coursework applying to a 
second major in engineering or a dual degree in another University of 
Illinois college. 

For an explanation of procedures to declare secondary fields of 
concentration and petitions associated with them, consult the chief 
advisor of the department or http: // www.ge.uiuc.edu.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering 

Industrial engineering reflects the global, systems-oriented way we 
look at the world today. Industrial engineers focus on systems and 
how their components tit together. To solve complex systems prob- 
lems, engineers must understand people as well as technology. Con- 
sequently, industrial engineering draws upon a variety of disciplines, 
from mathematics to psychology from communications to computer 
science, from production management to process control. Industrial 
engineers design efficient, productive systems in a wide range of 
business, industrial, and governmental settings. 

The technical portion of the industrial engineering curriculum is 
designed as a sequence of increasingly specialized experiences. The 
entering student's first year is spent mastering the basics of science: 
math, chemistry, and physics. Building on this base, in the second year 
students begin to take fundamental engineering courses such as 
statics, dynamics, statistics, and strength of materials. By the third 
year, students are taking specialized industrial engineering courses in 
operations research, human factors, facilities and production plan- 
ning, quality control, materials, and manufacturing. Finally, during 
the senior year, students have the opportunity to both broaden and 
deepen their knowledge of the field through technical elective courses. 
At the end of the curriculum, students take the capstone senior design 
course (IE 280), in which the knowledge and skills they have learned 
are applied to projects submitted to the department by industrial 
firms. Engineering design, communication, teamwork, and labora- 
tory experiences are integrated throughout the curriculum from the 
first year to the last year. 

The objectives of the Industrial Engineering program are to pre- 
pare students for successful careers by providing: 

• a rigorous background in mathematics and the physical sciences; 

• the analytical, computational, experimental, and methodological 
tools to define complex problems and create viable solutions; 

• communication and teamwork skills; 

• an understanding of their professional responsibilities with respect 
to the societal and ethical impacts of their actions; and 

• a recognition of the need for and the skills to engage in life-long 
learning. 

The educational outcomes associated with meeting these objec- 
tives are listed in the College of Engineering description. 

To qualify for registration in the industrial engineering courses 
shown in the third (junior) year of the curriculum, a student must have 
completed the mathematics, chemistry, physics, computer science, 
and engineering courses that are shown in the first (freshman) and 
second (sophomore) years of the curriculum with a combined grade 
point average of at least 2.25 (A=4.0). To remain in good academic 
standing or graduate from this curriculum, a student must have a 
gTade point average of at least 2.0 in all 200- and 300-level required 
engineering courses and technical elective courses taken on this 
campus. 

The curriculum requires 132 hours for graduation.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Materials Science and 
Engineering 

Civilizations have been defined by the increasingly complex materials 
they used. As our technologies improve, there continues to be a 
pressing need for new or improved materials. The goal of the materi- 
als science and engineering undergraduate curriculum is to provide 
an understanding of the underlying principles of synthesis, character- 
ization, and processing of materials and of the interrelationships 
amoung structure, properties, and processing. The interdisciplinary 
nature of materials science and engineering permits students with 
interests in physics,chemistry, electronics, and biology to interact and 
to expand and apply their interests to materials development and 
characterizatio. The program yields a fundamental understanding of 
all classes of materials, with specialization possible in a particular 
class of materials. Specified concentrations in ceramics, metals, poly- 
mers, and electronic materials are offered but other interdisciplinary 
concentrations (e.g., biomaterials or composites) are possible through 
a suitable choice of electives. 

Endorsing the educational objectives and outcomes of the college, 
the department expands on the outcomes in that the students can 
emphasize the science or engineering or both of materials. The pro- 
gram prepares students for professional careers in a wide variety of 
industries as well as for advanced study in this field. Design of 
materials with properties tailored for specific applications and the 
processes used to produce them are first introduced in the freshman 
year. This theme is developed throughout the curriculum in required 
and elective courses and culminates in a capstone design experience 
in the senior year. 

The program in materials science and engineering requires a 
minimum of 128 hours for graduation and is consistent with the 
professional component described in the introduction for the college.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical 
Engineering 

Mechanical engineering may be the most diverse of the engineering 
fields, embracing many subfields and affecting all aspects of our lives. 
Mechanical engineers work on new machines, products, and pro- 
cesses that hold the promise of better lives for all of us. They are 
concerned with both technological and economic aspects in the de- 
sign, development, and use of their products. Today, one of the 
challenges is to design efficient, low-cost machines and processes that 
use the fewest possible natural resources to improve the lives of 
people throughout the world. 

The technical portion of the mechanical engineering curriculum is 
designed as a sequence of increasingly specialized experiences. The 
entering student's first year is spent mastering the basics of science: 
math, chemistrv, and physics. Building on this base, in the second year 
1 students begin to take fundamental courses such as statics, dynamics, 
! basic circuits and electronics, thermodynamics, and strength of mate- 
rials. By the third vear, students are taking specialized mechanical 
i engineering courses in the subfields of fluid mechanics, heat transfer, 
dynamic systems and controls, materials, mechanical design, and 
: manufacturing. Finally, during the senior year, students have the 
: opportunity to both broaden and deepen their knowledge of the field 
through technical elective courses. At the end of the curriculum, 
students take the capstone senior design course (M E 280), in which the 
knowledge and skills they have learned are applied to projects sub- 
mitted to the department by industrial firms. Engineering design, 
communication, teamwork, and laboratory experiences are integrated 
! throughout the curriculum from the first year to the last year. 

The objectives of the mechanical engineering program are to 
prepare students for successful careers by providing: 

• a rigorous background in mathematics and the physical sciences; 

• the analytical, computational, experimental, and methodological 
tools to define complex problems and create viable solutions; 

• communication and teamwork skills; 

• an understanding of their professional responsibilities with respect 
to the societal and ethical impacts of their actions; and 

• a recognition of the need for, and the skills to engage in life-long 
learning. 

The educational outcomes associated with meeting these objectives 
are listed in the College of Engineering description. 

To qualify for registration in the mechanical engineering courses 
shown in the third (junior ) yea r of the curriculum, a student must have 
completed the mathematics, chemistry, physics, computer science, 
and engineering courses that are shown in the first (freshman) and 
second (sophomore) years of the curriculum with a combined grade 
point average of at least 2.25 (A=4.0). To remain in good academic 
standing or to graduate from this curriculum, a student must have a 



grade point average of at least 2.0 in all 200- and 300-level required 
engineering courses and technical elective courses taken on this 
campus. 

The curriculum requires 132 hours for graduation.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering 

Nuclear, plasma, and radiological engineering is a branch of engineer- 
ing that is concerned with the development and use of nuclear energy 
and radiation sources for a wide variety of applications in energy 
production, in materials processing and science, and for biomedical 
and industrial uses. Areas of interest include the continued safe and 
reliable application of fission reactors as central electric power plant 
thermal sources; plasma processing applications and the longer term 
development of fusion reactors for electric power generation; and the 
use of radiation sources in such areas as materials, biological systems, 
medical treatment, radiation instrumentation, environmental sys- 
tems, and activation analysis. 

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES 

Students pursuing the curriculum in nuclear, plasma, and radiologi- 
cal engineering should develop a comprehensive understanding of 
basic sciences, basic engineering, and advanced technical areas spe- 
cific to nuclear, plasma, and radiological engineering and the means 
to employ these principles in engineering practice. This should in- 
clude the ability to synthesize various concepts in engineering design 
and in the development of new engineering concepts, understanding, 
and applications. Students should develop a broad university-level 
understanding and appreciation of social and behavioral sciences, 
humanities, human cultures, and advanced communications skills 
consistent with the principles of general education. Students should 
also develop an appreciation of their abilities to contribute to society 
through ethical engineering practice. The curriculum should provide 
a large, flexible selection of both technical and free electives, which 
enables students to emphasize breadth or depth of study or both in 
their chosen field of concentration. The curriculum should prepare its 
graduates not only to enter directly into a wide variety of careers in 
-, plasma, and radiological engineering but also to continue 
advanced prof' J tudj a) Mi. graduate level. The curriculum 

M-;-. >i' Hi-'.-. ' .I thru ' lic-.t-ii i arret path, In 

: i ional development throughout their careers. 



EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES 

The nuclear, plasma, and radiological engineering degree program 
seeks to produce graduates who are able to: 

• understand and apply principal concepts in mathematics, physics, 
chemistry and engineering sciences, 

• understand and apply principal concepts in the area of radiation 
sources, interactions, and transport, 

• understand and apply advanced engineering concepts in their 
chosen area of professiona 1 concen tration, consistent with full prepara- 
tion for graduate-level, advanced professional study in that or other 
areas, 

• comprehend and apply computational techniques, 

• communicate effectively verbally and in writing, 

• analyze engineering problems, think critically and inventively 
about solutions to engineering problems, and use judgement to for- 
mulate effective approaches to solutions, 

• address more complex engineering problems by synthesizing and 
adapting knowledge from several areas and use this approach effec- 
tively in engineering design, 

• incorporate a perspective about ethical, social, and cultural values 
and an international perspective into their engineering practice, 

• maintain a professional outlook that embodies continued learning 
and professional development throughout their professional lives, 

• appreciate an appropriate variety of basic and advanced concepts in 
other disciplines (i.e. general education), 

• work effectively alone, in small groups, and in larger interdiscipli- 
nary groups. 

THE CURRICULUM 

The first two years of the curriculum provides a strong foundation in 
basic sciences (physics, mathematics, and chemistry), engineering 
sciences (analytical mechanics and thermodynamics), an introduction 
to digital computer use, and introduction to nuclear energy systems. 
Most technical concentration takes place in the third and fourth years 
of the curriculum according to the educational and career interest of 
the students. The curriculum provides three professional concentra- 
tion areas: power, safety and the environment; plasma and fusion 
science and engineering; and radiological, medical, and instrumenta- 
tion applications. Each concentration area follows flexibility in devel- 
oping advanced technical expertise but also requires depth of under- 
standing in the area. The third path meets all pre-med requirements 
and facilitates the minor in bioengineering. To complete this concen- 
tration area, students should take certain chemistry and biology 
courses in the first two years of the curriculum. 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation.

Special Programs 



INDIVIDUAL STUDY PROGRAM 

Each curriculum offered by the College of Fine and Applied Arts is 
designed to develop professional competence in the specific area of 
studies noted on the degree. Therefore, an individual study program 
must ensure this professional development. A qualified student (3.0 
cumulative GPA) who has specific professional goals that are not met 
by the curricular offerings of the college may request an individual 
program of studies selected from courses offered by the University. 
Such a program must include the basic courses prerequisite for 
advanced study, requirements of the University for graduation, gen- 
eral education requirements of the college, and professional course 
work that will ensure the competence expected for the particular 
degree. 

To obtain approval for an individual study program, the student 
must submit his or her proposal in writing during the sophomore or 
junior year. The proposal should contain an outline of the complete 
program of course work, as well as an explanation of the professional 
goal desired. It should be discussed with and submitted to an ap- 
proved representative of the appropriate department or school con- 
cerned with the degree, who will then forward the proposal through 
the executive officer of the department or school for recommendation 
to the college Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs. Final con- 
sideration and notification of the action taken on the proposal will be 
made by the college office. 

STUDY ABROAD 

The college provides the opportunity for students to obtain campus 
credit for foreign study and/or travel for a period of from one 
semester to one calendar year. Students must submit detailed propos- 
als of plans for such study and / or travel for approval by the appropri- 



ate departmental committees and by the associate dean of the college 
l>i ioi to su< li Stud) abroad. If approved, students register and retain 
their Status as I niversity students and may continue their student 
health insurance as it they continued to study at the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus. Information is available from the Study Abroad Office, 
113 International Studies Building, or from individual units in the 
college. 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

At graduation, the College of Fine and Applied Arts grants honors to 
superior students. To be eligible, students must have completed a 
minimum of four semesters of work and 65 hours of credit in residence 
at the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

For the degree with honors, the student must have a grade point 
a vei age of 3.25 (A = 4.0) or better in all courses used for graduation and 
be in the upper 25 percent of those receiving a degree from that 
department or school; for the degree with high honors, a grade point 
average of 3.5 or better and the upper 15 percent; and for the degree 
with highest honors, a grade point average of 3.75 or better and the 
upper 6 percent. Credit earned at other institutions and transferred to 
the University of Illinois is used in computing the student's average. 
Credit earned at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign must 
be of at least the level required for the degree with honors. 

Requirements 

GRADUATION 

Students who meet the general University requirements with refer- 
ence to registration, residence, scholarship, fees, and general educa-

fth School i Stopui u., in hitecture as a humanistic and 

liBciplini hich ymthesizes art and science through 

tal rigor, aesthetii judgment, and technical understanding 



The School achieves its mission through teaching, scholarship, cre- 
ative work, research, and service, and commits itself to the highest 
ideals of the profession and culture of architecture. 

The School's mission is based upon the conviction that architecture 
is first, reflective of the diverse, changing goals, values, and resources 
of society; and second, that architects have various and vital roles in 
interpreting and determining the status, values, conditions, and direc- 
tion of society, its culture and quality of life. 

Architectural education at Illinois is based upon the premise that 
to be an architect in today's complex and fast-changing, global society 
the architect must have knowledge in a variety of areas beyond the 
profession. Recognizing the diversity of roles that are now emerging 
in the profession, graduates should also have a well-developed focus 
in which they can initiate their career. 

DEGREE PROGRAMS IN ARCHITECTURE 

The School of Architecture offers a four-year preprofessional curricu- 
lum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies degree. 
The BSAS degree provides an undergraduate academic education in 
architecture that can serve as a foundation for advanced professional 
education. The undergraduate curriculum offers an appropriate bal- 
ance of basic professional studies in architectural design, architectural 
history, practice and technology, structures, and studies in the arts 
and sciences. 

The following statement is from the National Architectural Ac- 
crediting Board (NAAB): 

Most states require that an individual intending to become an architect 
hold an accredited degree. There are two types of degrees that are 
accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board: \)The Bach- 
elor of Architecture, which requires a minimum of five years of study, and 
2) the Master of Architecture, which requires a minimum of three years 
of study following an unrelated bachelor's degree or two years following 
a related pre-professional bachelor's degree. These professional degrees 
are structured to educate those who aspire to registration and licensure 
as architects. 

The four-year pre-professional degree, where offered, is not accredited 
by NAAB. The pre-professional degree is useful to those wishing a 
foundation in the field of architecture, as preparation for either contin- 
ued education in a professional program or for employment options in 
fields related to architecture. 
The accredited degree at the University of Illinois is the Master of 
Architecture. 

Since 1967, the School of Architecture has operated a one-year 
study abroad program in Versailles, France, which is open to qualified 
students on a priority basis. Course offerings parallel those available 
to students on the Urbana-Champaign campus but stress the Euro- 
pean context. 

The School of Architecture occupies drafting rooms, lecture rooms, 
and offices in the Architecture Building, Flagg Hall, and Temple 
Hoyne Buell Hall. The Ricker Library of Architecture and Art is 
located in the Architecture Building. 

UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM IN ARCHITECTURE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies 

In this curriculum, normal progress is imperative. A student failing to 
complete any required course more than one semester later than the 
time designated in the curriculum is prohibited from progressive 
registration in architectural courses until the deficiency is corrected. 
To continue at the sophomore level and beyond, a student must have 
a cumulative grade point average of 2.25 (A = 4.0) for all University 
course work attempted. For the Bachelor of Science in Architectural 
Studies degree, a total of 127 semester hours are required.

The Department of Dance, an autonomous unit in the College of Fine 
and Applied Arts, offers a small, personalized program within the 
context of a large university setting. The resident faculty of eight full- 
time members is augmented by part-time faculty and artists-in- 
residence. The teaching staff includes ten graduate teaching assistants 
who teach dance in the general education program. Major enrollment 
numbers approximately 50 BFA candidates and 12 MFA candidates. 
The department is an accredited institutional member of the National 
Association of Schools of Dance. 

Program focus at the graduate and undergraduate levels is on the 
professional preparation of performers, choreographers, and teachers 
with a breadth of understanding in the discipline. Two degree pro- 
grams are offered: bachelor of fine arts and master of fine arts. The 
choreographic and performance emphasis is in contemporary dance; 
ballet is included as an integral component of training. Classes in 
pointe, jazz, tap, and theatre dance are offered in the major curricu- 
lum. The field of dance science is addressed through courses in 
movement fundamentals/dance kinesiology, and the Alexander Tech- 
nique. 

The performance component of the department is housed in the 
Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, utilizing the exceptional 
performing, production, and teaching resources of this world-class 
facility. Additional studio and classroom facilities and the faculty and 
administrative offices are housed in two adjacent buildings in close 
proximity to the Krannert Center. Four department concerts per year 
are produced in the theatres of the Krannert Center, including two 
concerts of student choreography. The resident lecture-demonstra- 
tion company performs in community schools, and additional per- 
forming opportunities are provided in concerts presented in the dance 
studio/theatre, in operas and music performances, in University and 
community musicals, and in regional and national college dance 
festivals.

The School of Music occupies the Music Building, Smith Memorial 
Hall, Harding Band Building, Music Annex, and space in the Krannert 
Center for the Performing Arts. These facilities include studios, class- 
rooms, and practice and rehearsal rooms; experimental electronic 
music, computer music, digital piano, computer-assisted music in- 
struction laboratories, and jazz multimedia practice rooms; and mu- 
sical instruments, audio equipment, and several auditoriums used for 
concert, recital, opera, and musical theatre performances.The Music 
Library is one of the largest collections of music items in America. 

The faculty and students of the school present nearly 700 concerts, 
recitals, and stage performances throughout the year, both on and off 
campus. In addition, visiting artists and scholars from throughout the 
world present master classes and lectures which complement the 
concert and academic offerings provided on the Urbana-Champaign 
campus. 

The School offers two professional undergraduate degrees: the 
Bachelor of Music and the Bachelor of Music Education. Undergradu- 
ate students whose musical interests are in the broad historical, 
cultural, and theoretical aspects of music (rather than professional 
training) may want to investigate the bachelor of arts degree offered 
through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, described elsewhere 
in this catalog. Graduate degrees are offered in a variety of fields of 
study in music at the master's and doctoral levels. 

Bands, choral ensembles, orchestras, jazz bands, new music en- 
sembles, world music ensembles, opera theatre, and many other 
musical organizations are open to music and non-music majors and 
members of the university and civic communities by audition. Private 
lessons and courses in history, theory, and music appreciation are 
open to all qualified students in the University. A minor in music is 
available with a focus on performance, music history, or music theory. 

All applicants for admission to the School of Music must apply and 
be admitted to the University of Illinois, must audition successfully on 
their major performance instrument or in voice, and must take the 
Music Fundamentals Proficiency Exam. On-campus auditions are 
preferred, but taped auditions are acceptable under certain circum- 
stances. In addition, applicants for music composition-theory and 
history of music majors must submit original scores or other pertinent 
writings to substantiate their ability to pursue work in these areas. 
Applicants in music education, composition-theory, and history must 
also complete an interview with the music education faculty in those 
respective areas. 

For complete information concerning audition schedules, special 
admission requirements, and curricula (including a minor in music), 
prospective students should contact the Assistant Director for Enroll- 
ment Management and Student Services, School of Music, 1114 West 
Nevada Street, Urbana IL 61801, (217) 244-0551.

The sequences of classes given below are based on a typical four- 
year course of study but may be modified with an adviser's approval 
to meet the student's individual needs. 

Music majors should meet with their adviser at least once per 
semester and consult the Undergraduate Music Major Handbook for

Department of Theatre 

4-122 Krannert Center for the Performing Arts 
500 South Goodwin Avenue 
Lrbana, 1L 61801 
(217) 333-2371 

The curricular options in the Department of Theatre provide intensive 
and extensive preparation for the rigorous demands of a professional 
career in the theatre. A strong commitment to work in the theatre and 
a realistic understanding of its intellectual, aesthetic, and physical 
demandsare therefore necessary in students who enter the department. 

Before acceptance in the undergraduate programs in theatre, 
applicants must participate in auditions or interviews, which take 
place at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts five or more 
weekends each year, and at selected regional locations (normally New 
York, Chicago, and Los Angeles). In these auditions, applicants who 
ultimately plan to pursue the curriculum in acting in their junior year 
should present a three-minute audition, comprising two contrasting 
works from dramatic literature. Applicants who ultimately wish to 
pursue a curriculum in design, technology, or management should 
present a portfolio of previous theatre work. Applicants who intend 
to pursue the performance studies curriculum should also bring a 
portfolio of their previous theatre work, and any written work that 
reflects the student's interests and accomplishments. Information on 
these auditions and interviews will be sent to applicants once their 
admissibility to the University has been determined by the Office of 
Admissions and Records. 

Three curricula are offered in theatre: (1) the Professional Studio in 
Acting, (2) the Performance Studies Curriculum, and (3) the Division 
of Design, Technology and Management, which has specialized op- 
tions in scene design, costume design and construction, theatre tech- 
nology and lighting, and stage management. Students are formally 
admitted to these curricula only after an evaluation by the faculty 
during the students' second year. The programs in acting and theatre 
design, technology, and management are intended for students who, 
in the judgment of the faculty, are ready to concentrate in these 
specialties in an intensive undergraduate professional training cur- 
riculum. The performance studies curriculum is intended for students 
who plan to pursue advanced training and/or careers in theatre 
history, criticism, directing, theatre for youth, and playwriting. 

The Department of Theatre, as one of the resident producing 
organizations of the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, pro- 
duces seven fully mounted productions each academic year and three 
each summer. The theatres and workshops of the Krannert Center 
serve as laboratories for theatre students, who have the opportunity to 
learn and to work alongside an outstanding staff of resident theatre 
professionals and visiting artists, preparing performances in theatre, 
opera, and dance. In addition, the department sponsors a small 
experimental theatre space for student-directed productions. 

All theatre majors must successfully complete five production 
crew assignments at the Krannert Center under THEAT 100 — Practi- 
cum, I. Acting and performance studies students cast in Krannert 
Center productions must also take THEAT 300 — Practicum, II. De- 
sign, technology, and management students are required to work on 
Krannert Center prod uctions as assigned for THEAT 300 — Practicum, 
II, credit. Students seeking credit for practical theatre work outside the 
Krannert Center must secure the approval and supervision of theatre 
faculty in the form of an Individual Project (THEAT 291 or THEAT 
292) or as a Professional Internship (THEAT 390).

PROFESSIONAL STUDIO IN ACTING 

The acting program provides intensive training in a wide variety of 
performing media. In the first and second years, students take intro- 
ductory courses in movement, voice, and acting. Near the end of their 
second year of study in the department, students must audition for 
acceptance into the professional studio in acting. In addition to 
successful completion of all classes in their first and second years, 
acceptance will be based on an evaluation of each student's potential 
for professional-caliber performance, commitment to theatre, and the 
necessary discipline for intensive study. Third- and fourth-year stu- 
dents meet in daily four-hour sessions, each of which includes sections 
in dynamics, voice and speech, movement, and acting. Semester-long 
acting sections include advanced scene study, musical theatre, Shake- 
speare, and acting for the camera. Students in the professional studio 
in acting must audition for department productions and perform as 
cast.

DIVISION OF DESIGN, TECHNOLOGY, AND MANAGEMENT 

Students planning careers in professional theatre costume design and 
construction, scene design, sound design, stage management, and 
theatre technology and lighting are selected for the options in this 
division by a process of faculty evaluation in their second year of study 
in the department. Criteria for acceptance and continuance in these 
options include satisfactory completion of all course work in the first 
and second years, potential for professional-caliber work, commit- 
ment to theatre, and the necessary discipline for intensive study and 
practice. Students in these options are assigned to teams that design, 
mount, and manage more than twenty productions annually in the 
Krannert Center for the Performing Arts.

PERFORMANCE STUDIES CURRICULUM 

The performance studies curriculum provides professional training 
in areas of theatre and related studies for which further advanced 
training or experience is necessary. The performance studies curricu- 
lum is intended to lay the groundwork for students planning to 
pursue professional careers in such areas as theatre history and 
criticism, directing, playwriting, theatre for youth, social issues the- 
atre, and dramaturgy — areas in which a specialization at the graduate 
level is normally required. The performance studies curriculum pro- 
vides both a working knowledge of a wide range of performance arts 
and a proficiency in research and writing skills associated with 
theatrical production and scholarship. Primary emphasis is given to 
students gaining a comprehensive knowledge of the drama and 
performance practices of the past and an understanding of current 
practice. 

After successful completion of the second year of study, students 
are admitted into the performance studies curriculum after a review 
of their work by the performance studies curriculum committee.

The Department of Urban and Regional Planning offers a program 
leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Urban Planning. Urban 
planning gives practical expression to human values. Its aim is to 
sustain and enhance the quality of life in cities and regions, to create 
the good society-. Therefore, in addition to special technical skills, each 
student is helped to acquire a broad liberal education that leads to an 
understanding of the natural and social environments, their prob- 
lems, and their potentialities for enriching human life. Undergraduate 
planning education leads to diverse professional employment careers 
or graduate study in urban planning or related professions and is 
particularly useful as a prelaw program. Continuation in the program 
requires the student to maintain a 2.5 grade point average. The degree 
is professionally accredited by the Planning Accreditation Board. 

A transfer student must have completed 30 or more semester 
hours of acceptable undergraduate college work (including introduc- 
tory courses in microeconomics, statistics, political sciences, and 
sociology; a sequence in English composition is desirable) with an 
earned grade point average of at least 2.5 (A = 4.0). Transfer applicants 
not meeting these requirements will be considered in special cases. 

The department's administrative offices, classrooms, and work- 
shop space are located in Temple Hoyne Buell Hall. Students may go 
to Room 111 for information. 

The Department of Urban and Regional Planning also offers a 
program of graduate studies leading to the Master of Urban Planning 
degree, dual degree programs with the Master of Architecture and the 
Juris Doctor degrees, and the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Regional 
Planning.

College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 



702 South Wright Street 
Urbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-1705 
http://www.las.uiuc.edu 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) has four missions: 
scholarly inquiry and the generation of knowledge, preparation of 
individuals for an array of careers and professions, service to the 
public, and the provision of the intellectual core of the University. The 
college shares the first three missions with professional schools and 
other colleges on this campus, but the last mission is uniquely the 
responsibility of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. By fulfilling 
this responsibility, the college helps develop broadly educated indi- 
viduals who are committed to or characterized by open inquiry, 
critical thinking, effective communication, and responsiveness to the 
needs of individuals and society. 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the largest individual 
college within a university setting in the state of Illinois. The college 
enrolls more than 40 percent of the undergraduates on the Urbana- 
Champaign campus. The college serves the entire campus by provid- 
ing a full range of required general education and service courses in 
basic disciplines. 

Students in the college are expected to understand the content of 
and to develop skills in areas that reflect the overall purpose of the 
college: fluency and facility in English; literacy in at least one foreign 
language; broad exposure to a number of different disciplines; and 
intensive study in one discipline (or an interdisciplinary program). 
The student has a wide choice of courses to satisfy these requirements; 
however, ultimately he or she must plan a diverse and intensive 
program of study, prepare for an occupational, professional and 
intellectual future, and develop that clarity and range of mind that is 
the goal of educated people. 

Admission 

The general admission requirements and procedures of the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences are outlined in the Admission chapter. These 
requirements were established to enable students admitted here to 
make the most effective use of the facilities of the University. The 
requirements should ensure that entering students have the capability 
of completing a degree program successfully. 

The high school subjects required for admission provide a reason- 
ably rigorous preparation for most students. The college nonetheless 
urges prospective students to build on the minimum requirements 
whenever possible. In the study of foreign language, for example, 
successful completion of four years of a single language in secondary 
school will satisfy the College graduation requirement in foreign 
language so students should include as much foreign language as 
possible in their secondary school program. 

Advising 

Academic advising is a critical resource for students in developing a 
program of study. Especially on a large campus, a continuing, com- 
mitted association with a faculty member can be a valuable and rewar 
ing part of the student's educational experience. Advisers 
are available to aid students in choosing majors, planning for career 
choices, and selecting courses for each semester. All students in 
degree programs in the college have academic advisers available in 
their major departments except for interdisciplinary work such as 
International Studies which is advised at the college level. In addition, 
the assistant and associate deans in the college assist students in 
handling a variety of problems and questions. 

In order to simplify minor changes in course selections, a student 
who has successfully completed at least 30 semester hours of course 
work and who understands the requirements of the college and the 
University may choose courses without obtaining approval from an 
academic adviser unless informed otherwise by the college. See the 
Web site http://www.las.uiuc.edu/students/programs/academic_ 
programs. shtml for the most current available course offerings. 

A student does need to obtain approval from an adviser for a 
number of arrangements, including a formal plan of study for the 
major and the election of the credit-no credit grading option. A 
student may be requested by the college office to obtain approval from 
an adviser and /or the dean for all course changes under certain 
circumstances. It is very important for advanced students to confer 
with advisers on a regular basis; therefore, the college encourages all 
students to consult with their academic advisers at least once each 
semester. 

One particular resource for a student in the college who has not 
decided on a plan of study is the General Curriculum. The General 
Curriculum is an advising center for students who want to investigate 
a variety of subjects before selecting their majors or who have decided 
on programs that require transfer at the sophomore or junior level. The 
General Curriculum is not a degree program and does not serve as a 
formal program of study. Entering freshmen and continuing students 
with less than 45 semester hours of credit may elect to enter the 
General ( urriculum and may remain in the program until they 
complete 56 academic semester hours. The office provides individual 
group orientation sessions; and printed materials describ- 
ing majors, < urric ul.i, .mil many < arccr opportunities. Students in the 
' urriculum are 1 \S students and must follow LAS policies 



and regulations. The General Curriculum Office serves as the college 
office for students in the program. 

Another special resource in the college is qualified advising for 
students who are interested in law school. An assistant dean in the 
LAS Student Affairs Office (270 Lincoln Hall) counsels students who 
have declared a prelaw interest. All such students are encouraged to 
consult the prelaw adviser. Students preparing for law school may 
elect any major. To obtain a handbook on prelaw advising, contact the 
Prelaw Adviser at 270 Lincoln Hall. 

Graduation Requirements 

DEGREES GRANTED 

A degree can be earned by completing the requirements for either a 
Sciences and Letters Curriculum or one of the Specialized Curricula. 
A student completing the Sciences and Letters Curriculum receives 
the degree of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts 
and Sciences, depending on the student's major. A student electing 
one of the majors in the physical sciences, life sciences, psychology, 
mathematics, or statistics will receive the Bachelor of Science degree. 
A student in any of the other majors will receive the Bachelor of Arts 
degree. 

COMPONENTS OF THE SCIENCES AND LETTERS 
CURRICULUM 

ENGLISH COMPOSITION REQUIREMENT 

The ability to write effectively is a cornerstone of a liberal education. 
All students in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum must satisfy the 
campus rhetoric requirement. Students are strongly encouraged to 
include additional writing courses in their programs whenever pos- 
sible. 
FOREIGN LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT 

Each student in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum is expected to 
learn a foreign language in the undergraduate program. A minimum 
expectation is that the student obtain a knowledge equivalent to the 
completion of the fourth semester of college study in a language. Some 
programs may require additional study or the study of a specific 
language. A student planning on graduate study may wish to consult 
the department of intended graduate study about language require- 
ments for the graduate program. This may dictate the student's choice 
of language study during undergraduate work. The foreign language 
requirement may be met in any of the following ways: 

1. Satisfactory completion of four years of the same foreign lan- 
guage in high school; 

2. Satisfactory completion of the fourth-semester level of a lan- 
guage in college; 

3. Satisfactory completion of the third-semester level in each of two 
languages by any combination of high school and college work; 

4. Satisfactory performance at the fourth-semester level in a lan- 
guage proficiency examination approved by the College of Liberal 
Arts and Sciences and the appropriate department. 

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENT 

Through required General Education courses, each student in the 
college is expected to obtain an understanding of the ways in which 
knowledge is acquired and used in the diverse disciplines represented 
by the University's curricula. The graduate must have some acquain- 
tance with literature and the arts, historical and philosophical inquiry, 
and the insights and techniques of the social and behavioral sciences, 
the aims and methods of the natural sciences, and quantitative reason- 
ing. 

Students enrolled in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum (the 
exceptions are the Teaching Options) are therefore required to com- 
plete broadly distributed course work from the approved LAS Gen- 
eral Education course lists. Specific LAS General Education require- 
ments and current lists of courses approved for each of the general 
education categories may be obtained in the LAS Student Affairs 
Office, 270 Lincoln Hall or may be viewed at the following Web site: 
http://www.las.uiuc.edu/students/programs/gen_ed_ 
requirements. shtml. 

Students enrolled in Sciences and Letters Curriculum Teaching 
Options and Teacher Education majors in Computer Science and 
Foreign Languages should contact their adviser to be sure of General 
Education, degree, and certification requirements in their particular 



COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 



Students enrolled in Specialized Curricula must fulfill the Campus 
General education requirements. 

Students .irv urged to consult with their advisers regarding the 
choice ol General 1 education courses. Some of the approved courses 
have prerequisites. 

MAJOR/MINOR 

The College ol 1 iberal \rN and Sciences requires in-depth study in 
one discipline as well .is substantial experience in a number of other 
areas The in-depth studs portion of the student's program of study is 
called the major. Students might also pursue a minor in many subject 
areas across the campus A minor constitutes a coherent program of 
study requiring some depth in the subject but is not as extensive a 
program as the major Minors are optional. 

ADVANCED HOURS REQUIREMENT 

Each student is expected to complete a minimum portion of the 
undergraduate program in courses that presume some prior knowl- 
edge of the discipline. A course is considered advanced if it presumes 
such prior knowledge as indicated by the faculty, by the course 
number, by the prerequisites necessary for enrollment in the course, 
or bv the quality and depth of work expected of students in the course. 
All students in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum are expected to 
complete at least 21 hours of courses designated as advanced by the 
college in order to graduate. All such courses must be taken at 
baccalaureate-granting institutions. At least 12 advanced hours in the 
major must be taken on this campus. Courses designated as advanced 
are those courses numbered 300 or above and those 200-level courses 
that are specially designated as advanced. A list of 200-level courses 
that are designated as advanced may be found in the LAS Student 
Handbook 

ELECTIVES 

Most liberal arts majors allow time in the student's program for a 
number of courses chosen freely from among the University's offer- 
ings. These courses, called electives, may be used to prepare for 
professional study, to prepare for business and career opportunities, 
or simply to explore additional interests. In addition to all courses 
used in fulfilling the minimum graduation requirements of the college 
(rhetoric, foreign language, general education, and major), a student 
following a major may use as electives: 

— Courses offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; 

— Courses offered by departments and schools in other colleges of the 

University that sponsor majors in LAS [art (excluding applied art 
courses), computer science, economics, finance, music (excluding 
applied music courses), or physics]; 

— A maximum of 24 hours (to be counted toward graduation) of 
courses not included in either of the above, that is, courses offered 
by departments and schools in other colleges on campus. Exam- 
ples of courses in this category are accounting, aviation, business 
administration, engineering, applied art courses, and applied 
music courses. 

Undergraduate students of high academic standing (i.e., a 3.0 
grade point average or higher in courses taken beyond the sophomore 
level) within 10 semester hours of earning their bachelor's degrees 
may elect courses in the Graduate College for graduate credit with the 
consent of the dean of that college. Also, students with senior standing 
may petition the Graduate College for permission to elect graduate 
courses for undergraduate credit. Interested students should first 
consult the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 270 Lincoln Hall. 

RESIDENCE 

Students must satisfy the University residence requirement for gradu- 
ation. They must complete on this campus, uninterrupted by work 
elsewhere, either the first three years (at least 90 hours of course work) 
or the last year (at least 30 hours). The hours must be applicable toward 
the degree sought. In addition, all students must earn 60 hours of 
course work at four-year (baccalaureate-granting) institutions after 
any work at community colleges. 

TOTAL HOURS 

A total of 120 semester hours acceptable toward the degree is required 
for graduation in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum. 

Students should be aware that there are several specific limitations 
on the amount of particular kinds of credit that may be used in the 120 
hours: no repeated courses; no more than 24 elective hours outside the 
college, as discussed above; no more than 4 hours of credit in basic 



kinesiology courses; no more than 12 hours of credit in calculus and 
analytic geometry; no more than 1 2 hours of credit in basic physics; no 
more than 18 hours of credit in 100-level life science courses toward a 
School of Life Sciences major; no more than 9 hours of credit in basic 
rhetoric courses; no more than 10 hours of first- and second-year 
foreign language proficiency; no more than 24 hours of credit in 
aviation courses (must be from the pilot training curriculum); no more 
than 6 hours (200 and 300 level) of credit in ROTC courses; no more 
than 4 hours of credit in religious foundation courses; no more than 12 
hours of credit in undergraduate open seminar (199 course); and no 
more than 18 hours of credit in independent study and 199 courses. 
See the LAS Student Handbook for details about the credit limitations in 
each of these areas. 

Students matriculating at some college or university in June 1989 
or later may not use credit in algebra (MATH 112 or equivalent) 
toward a baccalaureate degree in the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences. In addition, students in the programs requiring trigonom- 
etry for admission (e.g., the specialized curricula in chemical engi- 
neering, chemistry, and physics) may not use credit in trigonometry 
(MATH 114 or equivalent) toward an LAS degree. See the LAS Student 
Handbook for further details. 

Areas of Study 

MAJORS IN THE SCIENCE AND LETTERS CURRICULUM 

The major consists of course work designated by the department and 
approved by the faculty of the college. The major should be chosen no 
later than the junior year. Since most majors require that the student 
choose courses in consultation with a faculty adviser, students should 
plan to discuss the major with a faculty adviser early in the junior year. 
In most cases, a student will be expected to submit to the LAS Student 
Affairs Office (270 Lincoln Hall) a Major Plan of Study Form (available 
at Departmental Offices) before the end of their fifth semester. 

Students must take all course work for the minimum requirements 
of the major for a traditional letter grade (or on the satisfactory- 
unsatisfactory basis). The credit-no credit grading option may not be 
used for courses in the major. 

The satisfactory completion of a major requires not only the 
completion of a stated amount of course work, but also that the 
student earn at least a 2.0 average in courses for the major. In order to 
graduate, a student should earn at least a 2.0 grade point average in all 
courses that are included in the major average and taken on this 
campus and at least a 2.0 average in all courses that are included in the 
major average and taken here and elsewhere. Consult the department 
or the college office for a list of courses included for a specific major's 
average.

SPECIALIZED CURRICULA 

Specialized curricula are designed for specific educational purposes 
which cannot be accommodated within the majors of the Sciences and 
Letters Curriculum. Specialized curricula are prescriptive programs 
that are offered as preprofessional study, preparation for graduate 
pursuits, or designed to meet the demands of an outside accrediting 
agency. 

Each specialized curriculum consists of a more rigidly structured 
course of study than that generally described for the sciences and 
letters majors.

MINORS AND INTERDISCIPLINARY MINORS 

A minor is a coherent program of study (generally 16-21 hours) 
requiring some depth in the subject, but is not as extensive as the 
major. Students must take the specified courses listed for each minor. 
Course substitutions are permitted with the approval of the adviser in 
the department offering the minor and the College office. Minors are 
optional but must be completed in conjunction with a major in a 
different discipline. Some majors may allow use of a minor in place of 
other supporting course work. 

While the minor does not replace other degree requirements, 
courses may be used both for the minor and to meet other degree 
requirements as appropriate. Students must see their records officer 
during the first semester of their senior year if they want to declare a 
minor. Students are advised to consult with the department offering 
the minor for information on the courses that will fulfill the require- 
ments.

INTERDISCIPLINARY MINORS 

There are several interdisciplinary areas in which scholarly needs or 
employment demands require recognition. In these areas, the college 
offers an interdisciplinary minor. 

The interdisciplinary minor differs from the standard minor in that 
it may require attainment of a predetermined and approved grade 
point average in the courses for the program. Students are required to 
consult with an adviser regarding selection of course work.

Combined Degree Programs 

LAS/ENGINEERING 

For a number of years, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the 
College of Engineering have jointly sponsored a five-year program 
leading to a B.A. or B.S. degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences and a B.S. 
degree in a field of engineering. The program allows motivated 
students to combine a professional engineering education with a 
broad liberal arts background. Students are required to complete all 
the degree requirements of both colleges. 

Freshmen normally apply for entrance through the College of 
Engineering, but students who have applied to and been accepted by 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences may be able to enter the 
program. All students must meet the entrance requirements of both 
colleges. In addition, they may be required to meet the intercollegiate 
transfer requirements of both colleges. For further information about 
the program, students should consult their college office. 

LAS/COMMERCE 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences together with the College of 
Commerce and Business Administration offer two joint-degree pro- 
grams that lead to the degrees of B.A. or B.S. in Liberal Arts and 
Sciences and M.A.S. or M.B.A. Each program takes five years to 
complete. These programs allow students to complete master's pro- 
grams in accounting or business administration while they provide 
students with the broad opportunities unique to a liberal arts pro- 
gram. Students interested in these opportunities should contact the 



College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 270 Lincoln Hall for additional 
information and advising. 

BACCALAUREATE-MASTER OF ACCOUNTING SCIENCE DEGREE 
PROGRAM 

(This program is currently under revision. Please see the College 
Office for up-to-date information.) 

The B.A./B.S.-M.A.S. program is designed to enable the qualified 
student to earn both a bachelor's degree in the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences and the Master of Accounting Science degree in five 
years rather than the normal six years. The program integrates an 
undergraduate education with a professional education without di- 
luting the quality or purpose of either. Program objectives will be met 
primarily by the completion of courses during the student's fourth 
year that are simultaneously electives in the baccalaureate program 
and requirements for the M.A.S. degree. A student who is interested 
in the joint degree should contact a program adviser (in 270 Lincoln 
Hall) early in the initial year. 

The program is open to all students in the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences who meet the requirements below. In most cases, partici- 
pants in the B.A./B.S.-M.A.S. program will complete their under- 
graduate majors by the end of the third year. As a consequence, some 
students will have to plan their course work carefully to meet their 
undergraduate educational objectives and to participate in the pro- 
gram; this will be particularly true for undergraduates whose majors 
require extensive sequential course work. 

Because the B.A./B.S.-M.A.S. program is based on careful course 
selection and program planning, an interested student should consult 
with a B.A./B.S.-M.A.S. adviser during the first year at the University. 
The program's objectives and requirements will be explained so that 
the student, in consultation with his or her baccalaureate degree 
program adviser, may plan course work to meet both objectives. 

A student who wishes to participate in the B.A./B.S.-M.A.S. pro- 
gram must make formal application by March 31 in the second 
semester of the junior year. To be eligible for consideration, the 
student must have at least a 3.25 cumulative grade point average, with 
at least 96 hours of course work completed, and at least a score of 550 
on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). 

BACCALAUREATE-MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION DEGREE 
PROGRAM 

The B.A./B.S.-M.B.A. program is designed to enable the qualified 
student to earn both a bachelor's degree in the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences and the Master of Business Administration degree in five 
years rather than the normal six years. The program integrates an 
undergraduate education in a field such as English, political science, 
or economics with a professional business education without diluting 
the quality or purpose of either. Program objectives will be met 
primarily by the completion of courses during the student's fourth 
year that are simultaneously electives in the baccalaureate program 
and requirements for the M.B.A. degree. A student who is interested 
in the joint degree should contact the program adviser (in 270 Lincoln 
Hall) early in the first year. 

The program is open to all students in the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences who meet the requirements below. In all cases, partici- 
pants in the B.A./B.S.-M.B.A. program must complete their under- 
graduate majors by the end of the third year. As a consequence, some 
students will have to plan their course work carefully to meet their 
undergraduate educational objectives and to participate in the pro- 
gram; this will be particularly true for undergraduates whose majors 
require extensive sequential course work. 

Since the B.A./B.S.-M.B.A. program is based on careful course 
selection and program planning, an interested student should consult 
with a B.A./B.S.-M.B.A. program adviser during the first year. The 
program's objectives and requirements will be explained so that the 
student, in consultation with his or her baccalaureate degree program 
adviser, may plan the course work to meet both objectives. A student 
who wishes to participate in the B.A./B.S.-M.B.A. program must 
make formal application by March 31 in the second semester of the 
junior year. To be eligible for consideration, the student must have at 
least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average on the last 45 hours of 
course work completed, with at least 96 hours of course work com- 
pleted by the beginning of the student's fourth year, and at least a score 
of 600 on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



Multidisciplinary Programs 



Three multidisciplinary majors are offered in the College. They are 
International Studies, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and 
Russian and East European Studies. 

The following units do not have formal undergraduate degree 
programs; however, a major may be created through the Individual 
Plans of Studies program and faculty advisers from one of the units. 
The units assist students interested in their subjects and coordinate 
research efforts in these areas. 

AFRO-AMERICAN STUDIES AND RESEARCH PROGRAM 

The Afro- American Studies and Research Program coordinates cam- 
pus-wide curricular, research, and programming activities that con- 
centrate on the population of African descent in North America, and 
to a lesser extent on the rest of the hemisphere. The program integrates 
multidisciplinary curricular offerings from the social sciences and the 
humanities. Five core faculty work with forty faculty affiliates in 
departments in the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences; Agricul- 
tural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences; Communications; Ed u- 
cation; Fine and Applied Arts; and Law. The Afro-American Studies 
office is located at 1201 West Nevada, Urbana, IL 61801. 

ASIAN AMERICAN STUDIES PROGRAM 

The Asian American Studies Program is committed to expanding the 
tradition of knowledge within Asian American studies and to inte- 
grating scholarly intellectual achievements with the interests of the 
campus constituiency, as well as the larger Illinois and national Asian 
American community. An interdisciplinary minor in Asian American 
studies is currently under development. This minor will provide an 
excellent opportunity for interested students to acquire a multicultural 
understanding of the U.S. and provide a context for students who 
want to continue their studies in a professional school graduate 
program, work in the fields of education, politics, or community 
relations, or broaden their horizons beyond a specific discipline for 
personal enhancement and development. The minor will offer stu- 
dents an opportunity to study a coherent multidisciplinary program 
in Asian American Studies. The Asian American Studies Program is 
housed on campus at 1003 West Nevada, Urbana, IL 61801; (217) 244- 
9530; aasc@uiuc.edu. 

ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES 

Atmospheric Sciences involves the application of physics, chemistry, 
and mathematics to the study of problems ranging from the very small 
scale (formation of small aerosols and cloud particles, reactions be- 
tween atmospheric gases) to regional scales (variations in local to 
regional weather, local air pollution) to global scales (changes in 
climate, changes in global chemistry and physics affecting the ozone 
layer). The broad spectrum of activities in the atmospheric sciences, 
including environmentally related studies, are represented by the 
education and research opportunities within the department. 

Undergraduate course offerings include topics such as severe and 
unusual weather, climate and global change, atmospheric physics and 
chemistry, satellite and radar meteorology, weather analysis and 
forecasting, and several multidisciplinary courses intended for non- 
specialists including one which examines the role of interacting physi- 
cal, biological, and human processes of the global Earth System in 
shaping the past, present, and future environments in Illinois. A 
minor is currently under development. For more information, please 
contact the Department of Atmospheric Sciences, 101 Atmospheric 
Sciences Building, 105 South Gregory, Urbana, IL 61801. 

CENTER FOR AFRICAN STUDIES

WOMEN'S STUDIES PROGRAM 

The Women's Studies Program is an interdisciplinary academic unit 
designed to teach, coordinate, and develop women's studies courses 
and advise undergraduate students. With over 40 affiliated faculty 
members, the program also initiates activities and programs to main- 
tain and expand scholarship on women and gender issues. The 
Women's Studies Program is located at 91 1 South Sixth Street, Cham- 
paign, IL 61820. 

Prelaw Advising 

Are you interested in attending law school or pursuing a career in the 
legal profession? The prelaw advising service in the College of Liberal 
Arts and Sciences, 270 Lincoln Hall, has information at all stages of an 
undergraduate career for students enrolled in any college on campus. 

Since "prelaw" is more a "state of mind" than a specific curricu- 
lum, students have great flexibility in pursing an undergraduate 
degree program and in selecting courses to prepare themselves for 
law school. Admission is based primarily on the undergraduate grade 
point average and the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), which 
students should plan on taking in the summer between their junior 
and senior years. Law schools admit students from almost every 
undergraduate background; for instance, among the students apply- 
ing to law school from the University in a recent year, no less than 
forty -nine separate undergraduate majors were represented, and 
students were accepted from every college. 

On the other hand, if law schools could advise students as to what 
they should do, they would emphasize that students take a good, 
broad liberal education, and they would urge students to challenge 
themselves by moving to advanced-level courses as soon as they find 
a subject in which they have significant interest. Since law study places 
a high emphasis on verbal and analytic skills, course work in areas that 
develop such skills is often chosen; specifically classes in the humani- 
ties and social sciences that emphasize writing and reading compre- 
hension are helpful. The LAS Student Affairs Office has a one-page 
handout which suggests some courses that students interested in a 
career in law might find helpful. Also, students in the general curricu- 
lum and in sciences and letters majors in LAS can request a prelaw 
coding. Although this coding has no curriculum implications, it 
enables students to be placed on a mailing list which permits them to 
receive information mailed from the prelaw adviser. Students from 
other colleges without access to the prelaw coding can be placed on the 
mailing list by providing the prelaw secretary in 270 Lincoln Hall with 
their current addresses each semester. 

The prelaw secretary also oversees a "Letter of Recommendation 
Service" that students planning to apply to law school can use from the 
beginning of their undergraduate program. Letters of recommenda- 
tion can be solicited from faculty and be placed on file until the 
individual is ready to send off applications. Details can be obtained in 
270 Lincoln Hall. 

When the student is ready to apply to law school, the prelaw 
adviser can help in overseeing the application process and in answer- 
ing questions about specific schools and their programs, about forms 
and procedures, and about where and when to apply . The adviser also 
can review with a student the personal statement and make students 
aware of special programs and opportunities, such as visits to campus 
from representatives of the law schools. 

The prelaw adviser also keeps a library of material from law 
schools and from Law Services, which oversees the administration of 
the LSAT. LSAT booklets also are available in 270 Lincoln Hall. 
Additionally, admission statistics at all of the nearly 1 80 American Bar 
Association-approved law schools are available not only in The Guide 
to U.S. Law Schools published by Law Services, but also from the data 
compiled by the prelaw adviser. The Prelaiv Handbook, which answers 
the most asked questions, and a pamphlet on the application process 
also can be obtained from the prelaw adviser. Some information on 
careers in law and on alternative directions with a law school educa- 
tion .ilso can be found in the prelaw advising service. 

An informational meeting for freshmen prelaw students takes 
place in the fall of every year, and a similar meeting for third year 
students who will be in the process of applying to law school in the fall 
of their senior year is conducted each spring. Students can make an

appointment with the prelaw ad\ isei .it any stage of their under- 
graduate programs to discuss these or other concerns. 

Teacher Education Curricula (Secondary) 

The College of 1 iberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Education 
have de\ eloped a coherent set of experiences on campus, in schools, 
and in communities that will prepare our students to become skilled, 
knowledgeable, and committed teachers. There are two ways that 
students ma) obtain teacher certification through the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

Students preparing for teacher certification in biology, chemis- 
try, computer science, earth science, English, mathematics, physics, 
social studies, and speech: These students complete a teaching option 
offered through jn 1 AS major and the Teacher Education Minor in 
Secondary School Teaching. Upon completion of the option and the 
Teacher Education Minor in Secondary School Teaching, students will 
earn a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree in Liberal Arts 
and Sciences as well as teaching certification. Conferral of the degree 
of Bachelor of Science or Arts in Liberal Arts and Sciences prior to 
completion of the minor requires approval by petition to the LAS 
Student Affairs Office. 

Students preparing for teacher certification in any of five foreign 
languages (French, German, Latin, Russian, and Spanish): Students 
following these programs complete the requirements for the Bachelor 
of Arts in the Teaching of French (or German, etc.) Education courses 
and other courses required for teacher certification are integrated 
within each curriculum. 

More detailed information pertaining to specific course require- 
ments for each of the programs in both groups is provided by aca- 
demic advisers. Only through regular communication with the teacher 
education adviser may the student be assured of the appropriateness 
of his or her program. Students are advised that certification require- 
ments may be altered at any time by the State Teacher Certification 
Board or by the legislature. In such cases, students may be compelled 
to satisfy the new requirements to qualify for the University's recom- 
mendation for certification. Also see the Council on Teacher Educa- 
tion section for information pertinent to all teacher education and 
specific areas of teacher education listed in the LAS Programs of Study 
section of this catalog. 

TEACHING OF BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, COMPUTER SCIENCE, 
EARTH SCIENCE, ENGLISH, MATHEMATICS, PHYSICS, SOCIAL 
STUDIES, AND SPEECH 

Students following any of the teaching options in the Sciences and 
Letters Curriculum must complete all the course requirements for that 
curriculum. When they select their major, they may also select a "Pre- 
Teaching professional indicator," which reflects their intent to com- 
plete the requirements for teacher certification as part of their under- 
graduate program. 

Transfer into the Teaching Option within a major can be made only 
by students who have received approval to complete the Teacher 
Education Minor in Secondary School Teaching. Approval for the 
Teacher Education Minor in Secondary School Teaching is gained by 
successful application to the Department of Curriculum and Instruc- 
tion in the College of Education, upon recommendation by the subject 
area committees of the Council on Teacher Education. 

Two prerequisite courses must be completed before transfer to the 
Teaching Option in any major: EDPSY 21 1 and E P S 201 . Additionally, 
each major stipulates other prerequisite courses that must be com- 
pleted before admission to the Teaching Option. Interested students 
should see the academic advisers in the major for information on 
prerequisite courses. 

Some students will be able to complete all the prerequisite courses 
for transfer into the Teaching Option of their major by the spring of 
their sophomore year; those students may be able to complete the 
requirements for the Bachelor's degree in LAS, the Teacher Education 
Minor in Secondary School Teaching and all other requirements for 
teacher certification in four years. 

Students who establish eligibility to transfer into the teaching 
option of their major in the spring of their junior year will need five 
years to satisfy the requirements for teacher certification. Those stu- 
dents, however, may be able to convert up to 1 5 hours of course credit 
in excess of the minimum required for the Liberal Arts and Sciences 
Bachelor's degree into graduate credit. 



GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 

Students in LAS undergraduate programs leading to secondary certi- 
fication will be expected to complete the LAS general education 
requirements as well as any program-specific course work. Students 
should contact their program coordinator for teaching options within 
their chosen major for general education advising. 

TEACHING OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES 

This section contains a description of the requirements for programs 
leading to the bachelor's degree in teacher education. More detailed 
information pertaining to specific course requirements for each area of 
specialization is provided by faculty advisers. It is essential that the 
student fulfill the specific course requirements of his or her program 
in order to be eligible for the bachelor's degree in teacher education. 
Only through regular communication with the teacher education 
adviser may the student be assured of the appropriateness of his or her 
semester program. Students are advised that certification require- 
ments may be altered at any time by the State Teacher Certification 
Board or by the legislature. In such cases, students may be compelled 
to satisfy the new requirements to qualify for the University's recom- 
mendation for certification. Also see the Council on Teacher Educa- 
tion section for information pertinent to all teacher education cur- 
ricula. 

General education requirements of the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences must be fulfilled by students pursuing teacher education 
curricula in that college (see General Education requirements listed 
above). If the requirements of the teaching major satisfy the general 
education requirements in an area, they will be noted in the curricu- 
lum statement. For more information, consult the certification officer 
(130 Education Building). 

Transfer Between Programs 

Students should be advised that they may have to satisfy specific 
grade point average requirements for transfer into most specialized 
curricula and some majors. Contact an adviser or the LAS Student 
Affairs Office (270 Lincoln Hall) for specific information. 

Honors Programs 



DEAN'S LIST 

Each semester students are recognized by the college for placement on 
the Dean's List. Those students are eligible who meet the following 
criteria and are in the top 20 percent of their classes. To be eligible for 
Dean's List recognition, you must have completed at least 14 hours of 
course work, excluding military and religious foundation courses and 
graduate-level courses taken for unit credit. Of these 14 hours, at least 
12 hours must be earned in courses taken for traditional letter grades, 
which excludes courses graded credit/no credit, satisfactory/unsat- 
isfactory, and test-based credit, which is graded pass/fail. Course 
work completed through study abroad may be included in determin- 
ing Dean's List eligibility, subject to these same limitations. Students 
with work graded excused or deferred are not considered for the 
Dean's List until grades have been submitted for that work. These 
students should notify the honors dean when such work has been 
completed if they expect to be placed on the Dean's List. 

JAMES SCHOLAR PROGRAM 

The official honors program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
is called the Edmund J. James Scholar Program. This program allows 
students with exceptional ability to pursue rigorous academic study 
and provides the opportunity for those students to meet with faculty 
members on an individual basis. There are honors advisers available 
in some departments and an honors dean in the college office. James 
Scholars register in some special honors sections and they arrange 
individualized honors credit learning agreements for specific courses. 
James Scholars have open access to the University Library stacks 
(ordinarily open only to graduate students and the faculty); such 
access to library stacks is particularly helpful for students involved in 
independent study and/or undergraduate research projects. James 
Scholars also have their program requests processed early to mini- 
mize conflicts in scheduling honors courses. 

Any qualified LAS student may become a James Scholar Nominee. 
Entering freshmen in the top 15 percent of the admitted class are 
invited immediately into the program as James Scholar Nominees. In 
order to remain a James Scholar, students must maintain a cumulative 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



grade point average of 3.5 and must complete two honors courses each 
academic year. Official certification of James Scholar standing on the 
University transcript is made at the end of the academic year (upon 
completion of these requirements). 

Further information about the James Scholar Program is available 
from the LAS Student Affairs Office, 270 Lincoln Hall. 

ROGERS MERIT SCHOLAR PROGRAM 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has established the Robert W. 
Rogers Merit Scholarship program for highly qualified freshmen. A 
freshman chosen as a Robert W. Rogers Scholar enrolls in any curricu- 
lum in the college and is awarded $1,000 for the year; the award may 
be renewed for the sophomore year if the student maintains at least a 
3.5 grade point average and continues in the college. Admitted fresh- 
men with the highest qualifications are invited to apply. The selection 
of a Rogers Scholar is made by a faculty committee and based on 
exceptional scholastic achievement, high performance on either the 
ACT or SAT examination, and evidence of leadership in the school or 
community. No more than twelve new awards are made each year. 
Rogers Scholars participate in selected campus activities drawing on 
some of the University's academic and cultural resources. 

COHN SCHOLARS HONORS PROGRAM 

The Cohn Scholars Program provides intellectual and financial sup- 
port and special academic opportunities for a small group of highly 
qualified freshmen majoring in the humanities. Cohn Scholars enroll 
in a two-semester course sequence in Western civilization offered by 
the Department of History or the Program in Comparative Literature, 
with special discussion sections. Cohn Scholars participate in special 
campus activities designed to acquaint them with some of the 
University's many academic and cultural resources. Each Cohn Scholar 
may also participate in a yearlong independent study course in his or 
her field of interest (or in a closely related field) with a faculty mentor 
from one of the humanities disciplines. The independent study course 
offers each student the opportunity to interact with a faculty member 
on an individual basis through intensive study in a selected subject. 
Applications to the program are invited in early spring from 
highly qualified high school students who have been admitted for the 
following year to one of the humanities departments or programs in 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Potential students are se- 
lected by a faculty committee on the basis of an application, high 
school class rank, and performance in a competitive entrance exami- 
nation (ACT or SAT). 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

College honors at graduation are awarded on the basis of academic 
excellence and satisfaction of one of the following: (1) successful 
completion of 25 hours of honors courses (including work taken on 
honors credit learning agreements); (2) successful completion of 35 
hours of advanced hours course work; or (3) earning departmental 
distinction. Provided that one of the requirements above is satisfied, 
the award of college honors is made according to the following ranges:

top 12 percent of the graduating class but not in the top 7 percent; 
magna cum laude, if the college grade point average places a student 
in the top 7 percent of the graduating class but not in the top 3 percent; 
and summa cum laude, if the college grade point average places a 
student in the top 3 percent of the graduating class. 

DEPARTMENTAL DISTINCTION 

Students who have shown exceptional competence in one or more 
areas of study may earn distinction in their major(s) or curricula. 
Criteria for awarding distinction are established by the departments. 
Students interested in working for distinction should consult their 
honors adviser early in the junior year. 

PHI BETA KAPPA 

Invitations for membership into Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest 
honor society, are sent to outstanding students in Liberal Arts and 
Sciences each April. Eligibility requires rank in the top 7 percent of 
in I AS, as wi'll as .i minimum number of graded hours and 
appropriate course distribution. Precise criteria and detailed informa- 
tion may be obtained from the chapter secretary, Office of the Provost 
and ViceChancili..i foi A. ademic Affairs, Swanlund Building, Univer- 
i i Ea tJohnStreet / Champaign,IL61820 / (217)333-2353. 



AWARDS 

There are a number of prizes and awards available to outstanding 
students in certain areas of the college. A department will generally 
notify the student of the possibility of such an award; however, an 
interested student may obtain information on the awards from the 
college office, 270 Lincoln Hall. 

Study Abroad Programs 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences supports the Study Abroad 
Office to aid students who plan to study at approved foreign institu- 
tions or in programs of their choice other than those offered by 
departments within the college itself. The option is open not only to 
students in LAS, but also to students in other colleges within the 
University. A student's program for study abroad must have prior 
approval from the major department, the student's college, and the 
Study Abroad Office. Final determination of appropriate credit is 
made upon the student's completion of the work after returning to 
campus. LAS students are encouraged to consult with an Assistant 
Dean in the LAS Student Affairs Office (270 Lincoln Hall) before 
undertaking programs abroad to ensure their work overseas will be in 
conformity with University of Illinois courses. 

Students register in LAS 299 and may earn a maximum of 18 hours 
in a semester, 8 hours in a summer session, 36 semester hours for the 
academic year, or 44 hours for the calendar year. 

Four LAS language units sponsor programs abroad that are not 
restricted to language majors: the Department of French (one semester 
or academic year study in the Illinois Program in Paris); Department 
of Germanic Languages and Literatures (one semester or academic 
year in Vienna, Austria); Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portu- 
guese (an academic year at the University of Barcelona); and the 
Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures (an academic year 
at Konan University in Kobe, Japan). In addition, the LAS College 
sponsors a limited number of summer session I courses at overseas 
sites for advanced work in majors and languages each May. 

Interested students should contact the appropriate department 
early in the fall semester prior to the year in which the overseas study 
is planned to receive details of course prerequisites, GPA require- 
ments and costs.

ANTHROPOLOGY 



The Anthropology major and minor are administered by the Depart- 
ment of Anthropology. Anthropology, which views human biology, 
behavior, and society (both past and present) in a cross-cultural 
perspective, combines scientific and humanistic interests in a modern 
social sciences framework. It includes biological anthropology (bio- 
logical diversity and evolutionary history of human and nonhuman 
primates), archaeology (human prehistory and the organization and 
growth of technology and society), sociocultural anthropology (com- 
parative study of identity and power in social contexts from hunter- 
gatherer to complex urban settings, with attention to contemporary 
global movements of peoples and diasporic social formations), and 
linguistic anthropology (comparative study of languages and com- 
munication). Although the student should strive for a topical and 
geographical balance, an undergraduate may specialize in one of 
these four branches and may also study some world cultural area 
intensively through an area studies program. Anthropology is an 
appropriate major for those seeking a general liberal education; for 
those preparing for professional study and careers in law, medicine, 



UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS 



or commerce; and for those planning further graduate study in 
anthropology. Professional anthropologists work as research scien- 
tists and teachers in museums, universities, and archaeological sur- 
veys; as staff members in government agencies, social service pro- 
grams, and business firms in which international understanding of 
human and social concerns is important; or as independent consult- 
ants to such agencies, programs, and firms.

Like the other humanities, the history of art as an undergraduate 
major offers an enrichment of and a preparation for life, rather than 
training for a specific occupation. The student who goes on to gradu- 
ate work in the field can look forward to becoming a teacher of the 
subject, to membership on the staff of a museum, or to employment in 
a commercial art gallery. 

Working in consultation with the undergraduate adviser for art 
history in the School of Art and Design, each student will design a 
program of study that satisfies the requirements listed below. Stu- 
dents who wish to take a considerable number of studio courses as 
part of their major should enroll in the history of art option offered by 
the School of Art and Design within the College of Fine and Applied 
Arts.

the approval of the adviser. Although the program in art 
history allows considerable latitude in the selection of such 
courses, they should be chosen with the goal of enhancing the 
student's understanding of the cultural context within which 
works of art and architecture have been created. Recent 
practice suggests that supporting courses will most 
commonly be drawn from such fields as anthropology, 
classics, history, literature, music and dance history, 
philosophy, psychology, and religious studies. 

Twelve hours of advanced-level (300- and approved 200-level) courses 
in the major must be taken on this campus. 

All foreign language requirements must be satisfied. French or Ger- 
man is strongly recommended for fulfilling the foreign language 
requirement; however, another language may be used with the ap- 
proval of the adviser as the needs of the student's program dictate. A 
student who has decided to make the history of Oriental art his or her 
major study area in undergraduate and graduate work would be well 
advised to satisfy the foreign language requirement with Chinese or 
Japanese rather than with a European language. 

A Major Plan of Study Form must be completed and submitted to the 
LAS Student Affairs Office before the end of the fifth semester (60-75

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING 



MAJOR IN SPECIALIZED CURRICULUM IN CHEMICAL 
ENGINEERING 

The chemical engineering curriculum is designed to prepare students 
for careers in the chemical, food, energy, pharmaceutical, semicon- 
ductor processing, personal care, fiber and materials industries where 
chemical processes are coupled with heat, mass, and momentum 
transfer. The curriculum is arranged in a flexible manner to permit 
students to use their elective hours and to substitute courses in order 
to arrange programs incorporating various specific areas of chemical 
engineering or interdisciplinary areas. For example, sequences can be 
set up in conjunction with the student's adviser to emphasize environ- 
mental engineering, bioengineering, food science, computer science, 
or one of many other options. It will be advantageous to the student 
to plan course sequences with an adviser as early in the student's 
academic career as possible. 

The program emphasizes fundamentals required to develop mod- 
els for the design, control, and operation of chemical processes. 
Students entering without adequate preparation in mathematics and 
chemistry may find it difficult to complete the chemical engineering 
curriculum in four years. A typical program, including all required 
courses and electives, is shown below. Individual students may vary 
the order in which the various courses are taken to suit their individual 
needs. However, care must be exercised in scheduling to ensure that 
necessary course prerequisites are met. 

Students in the curriculum of chemical engineering must maintain 
a 2.5 general average, excluding military training in order to be 
accepted by the department as juniors and seniors. 

For information regarding the cooperative education program 
and internships in the School of Chemical Sciences, see the Chemistry 
major in the Science and Letters curriculum.

prerequisite forCHEM 107,may substitute the sequence CHEM 101, 102, 105, 106,223, 
and 224 for CHEM 107, 108, 109, and 110. 

2. All Campus General Education requirements must be satisfied, including those in 
approved course work in the Humanities /Arts, Social/Behavioral Sciences, and 
Cultural Studies, including the Western, Non-Western and/or U.S. Minorities 
components. The requirements for the Campus General Education categories Natural 
Sciences /Technology, Quantitative Reasoning I, and Composition I and II are fulfilled 
through required course work in the curriculum. 

3. Three semesters of college credit in one foreign language is required. Three years 
of high school credit in one foreign language are equivalent to three semesters of 
college credit. 

4. Students must take at least 19 hours of technical electives in areas of engineering 
science. These must include at least 6 hours of chemical engineering electives plus at 
least 3 additional hours of 300-level electives (or CH E 292). Students may obtain a 
current list of courses that may be used to satisfy this requirement in Room 209 RAL. 

5. MATH 243 (4 hours) may be substituted for MATH 242 (3 hours). The additional 
credit hour earned for MATH 243 will be counted as a technical elective hour. 

6. BIOCH 350 may be substituted for CHEM 336. 

7. Students may substitute MATH 315 for MATH 225. Students electing to do so 
should be certain that thev have the prerequisites for MATH 315. 

8. MATH 341 may be substituted for MATH 285. MATH 286 (4 hours) may be 
substituted for MATH 285. The additional credit hour earned for MATH 286 will be 
counted as a technical elective hour. 

CHEMISTRY 

Students may pursue chemistry by following either the specialized 
curriculum in chemistry (leading to the Bachelor of Science in Chem- 
istry), or one of two options in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum 
(leading to the Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts and Sciences). The 
department also sponsors a minor in chemistry and a teacher educa- 
tion minor in chemistry. These programs of study are administered by 
the Department of Chemistry. 

The chemistry option in the Sciences and Letters Curriculum is 
used by some students planning chemistry careers, but it is more often 
chosen by students wishing to obtain chemistry backgrounds for use 
in related fields. In contrast, the specialized curriculum in chemistry 
is a rigorous, specialized program suitable for those planning careers 
in chemistry. It meets standards prescribed by the American Chemical 
Society.
